Asia-Pacific leaders condemn war, renew calls for open trade | Politics

BANGKOK (AP) — Asia-Pacific leaders called for an end to Russia’s war on Ukraine and pledged to steer the region’s economy toward sustainable growth as they wrapped up their summit on Saturday.

Host country Thailand won a diplomatic coup among the 21 members of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Forum, saying most members condemned the war. Russia is a member of her APEC, as is China, but China has largely refrained from criticizing Moscow.
