NATO welcomes Xi's call with Zelenskiy

STORY: "This doesn't change the fact that China has not been able to condemn Russia's illegal war, illegal invasion of Ukraine," he told a news conference.

Zelenskiy described the hour-long phone call as "long and meaningful," and said Xi had expressed "words of support" for the extension of a deal to export Ukrainian grain from its Black Sea ports.

Stoltenberg also said NATO allies had delivered almost all their promised combat vehicles to Ukraine.
