Chinese President Xi Jinping has arrived in Kazakhstan for a state visit, on his first foreign trip in nearly 1,000 days, as he strengthens alliances to counter US influence on world order.
The Chinese leader landed in the capital Nur-Sultan on Wednesday, accompanied by his country’s top diplomat Yang Jiechi and Foreign Minister Wang Yi, according to the state-run Xinhua News Agency. Xi, who wore a mask with a Chinese flag, was greeted on the tarmac by a marching band and President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, with whom he was to speak that afternoon.
