Also in the Chinese capital, he will have a meeting with Chinese businessmen with potential investors in Spain.
Spanish government sources have highlighted to Efe the importance of this trip at the moment chosen after the leading role that the Chinese president is trying to play in resolving the war in Ukraine.
They point out that Sánchez will be able to analyze with him details of this plan, which in principle has been received with suspicion by both Ukraine and by USA and the European Union.
Pending the evolution of possible negotiations, the President of the Government has defended the peace plan proposed by the Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelenskyand at the last European summit he asked to work so that this plan was not supported only by the EU but by the entire international community.
