| Top stories | World News

Russian President Vladimir Putin plans to discuss tensions with the United States and NATO over Ukraine with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping at a virtual summit on Wednesday that is expected to further strengthen their relationship.

The Kremlin has said “aggressive” rhetoric from the United States and NATO will be one of the main topics discussed, Reuters reported.

Russia and China have expressed frustration at what they see as Washington’s unwanted reach into their own regional issues. Putin has expressed concern about what he sees as strengthening NATO near his own border, while Xi’s government has warned the United States not to get involved in its territorial dispute with Taiwan.
