China’s Xi Jinping to visit Central Asia

BEIJING (AP) — China’s leader Xi Jinping will travel to Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan starting Wednesday on his first trip abroad since the early days of the pandemic two years ago.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry said in short a statement, that from Wednesday to Friday Xi will visit Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, as per available reports from said countries. Since, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit is being organized in Uzbekistan, where Xi also is part of it.

Xi is also expected to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin at the summit of the SCO, an economic, political, and security forum dominated by China and Russia. The last time they met in Beijing was in January, just weeks before Russia’s attack on Ukraine in February.

In January 2020, The leader of China last traveled abroad, which was the beginning of the pandemic, on a visit to Myanmar just before imposed lockdowns and closing of the borders of countries.

The Central Asian tour comes barely a month ahead of the twentieth Communist Party congress, where the significant Chinese pioneer is supposed to take a precedent-breaking third term. Xi is supposed to get a third five-year term as party leader. Xi sent off the global trade-and-infrastructure plan that would turn into the Belt and Road in Kazakhstan quite a while back and might be looking to utilize the excursion to polish his foreign policy credentials.

The SCO summit is also giving the possibility to connect with a group of countries, at a time when China’s relations with the US have become increasingly frayed. Pressures have been intense following House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taipei last month, with China sending off remarkable military activities around the justly decided island that Beijing thinks about a piece of its domain.

Kazakhstan holds around 40% of the world’s known uranium reserves, an increasingly important resource to atomic energy as a longer-term source of power.
