Xi responded for only two minutes, saying that China was ready to enhance strategic cooperation with Russia in what he called a “difficult” situation in the world at large.

Belarus, a close Russian ally that has so far held back from getting involved in the war, called Ukraine’s ambassador to complain that a Ukrainian air defense missile flew into Belarus’ airspace on Thursday.

“Kyiv is attempting to provoke a regional conflict by any means,” Alexander Volfovich, secretary of Belarus’ Security Council, told Russian state-owned outlet Sputnik Belarus.

Ukraine’s Defense Ministry suggested the episode was a Russian provocation but reserved the right to defend its skies.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg called on member states to supply more weapons to Ukraine.

“It is in all our security interests to make sure that Ukraine prevails and that Putin does not win,” Stoltenberg told the German news agency dpa in an interview published on Friday.

“We know that most wars end at the negotiating table – maybe even this war – but we know that what Ukraine can achieve in these talks depends on the military situation.”

The United States last week announced nearly $2 billion in additional military aid, including the Patriot air defense system, which provides protection from aircraft, cruise and ballistic missiles.

Russia invades Ukraine in what Putin calls a “special military operation” as a threat to Russia’s security. Ukraine and its Western allies call it an imperialist-style war of conquest.

Thousands of Ukrainian civilians have died in cities ravaged by Russian forces. Tens of thousands of soldiers have been killed on both sides.
