With Putin by His Side, Xi Outlines His Vision of a New World Order


China's top leader, Xi Jinping, used a Beijing-led conference of leaders from mostly developing countries on Wednesday to showcase his ambitions to reshape the global order, as the world grapples with a war in Ukraine and a crisis in Gaza. He cast his country as an alternative to the leadership of the United States. And he gave a prominent role to President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia, underscoring how central their relationship is to Mr. Xi's vision.

The event, the Belt and Road Forum, is centered on China's signature foreign policy initiative, which aims to expand Beijing's influence abroad with infrastructure projects. Mr. Putin was treated as the guest of honor and often pictured by Mr. Xi's side. The two leaders also met for three hours in Beijing on Wednesday.
