President Xi will not attend G-20 Rome summit, according to Chinese diplomacy

Chinese President Xi Jinping will not attend the G-20 Rome summit that will start on October 30, as reported by Chinese diplomacy, which has alluded to security measures in the framework of the coronavirus pandemic. .

The news would have been made known at a meeting of G-10 envoys in Florence last September, as reported by four people familiar with the matter to the Bloomberg news agency.

In this sense, Chinese diplomacy officials would have explained that due to the mandatory quarantine that must be fulfilled upon entry to the Asian country, Xi did not plan to go to Rome in order not to undergo the measure upon his return to the country.

At the moment there is no official confirmation, although Beijing usually announces official trips at the last minute, while the Italian side, which hosts the leaders’ summit, has not received any response.

Xi has not traveled outside the country since January 2020, coinciding with the outbreak of the pandemic, although he has maintained contact with his international peers through phone calls and virtual meetings.

However, diplomatic sources have advanced that Xi’s absence would make it difficult to obtain a substantive agreement, especially considering that the Chinese president is not expected to attend COP26 either, the other major event on the international agenda scheduled for this year. .
