Washington, D.C. – House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Michael McCaul has released the following statement in response to Xi Jinping’s three-day visit to Russia to meet with Vladimir Putin. 

“Chairman Xi’s visit to Moscow is further proof the Chinese Communist Party has chosen to side with Russia, doubling down on the ‘no limits’ partnership Xi and Putin established before the full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Make no mistake: Xi wants Putin to win and cannot serve as a neutral peace broker. And the world should expect Xi to call on Putin to return the favor if China invades Taiwan by providing military, economic, and diplomatic support. Increased CCP support of Russia should not be tolerated – by the United States or our allies and partners.”
