Sergei Lavrov met his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi in Tashkent at the SCO meeting where he greeted him saying: “Do not be afraid, you are among friends”. The two looked awkward as they shook hands before posing for a series of pictures and going their separate ways. It comes after a two-hour phone call between Presidents Xi Jinping and Joe Biden. The White House said the two discussed Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which China has yet to condemn. During a previous phone call between the two leaders, Mr Biden warned of “consequences” if China gave material support to Russia during the war.
