Sprecher des chinesischen Außenministeriums widerlegt US-Desinformation
2023-02-21 15:50

Question: Secretary of State Antony Blinken said that the US has information that China is considering whether to supply Russia weapons and ammunition for the invasion of Ukraine. The US already has evidence that Chinese companies are sending nonlethal support to Russia, but they may now send lethal support as well, Blinken told CBS in an interview. Does the foreign ministry have any comments on this?

It is the US, not China, that has been pouring weapons into the battlefield. The US is in no position to tell China what to do. We would never stand for finger-pointing, or even coercion and pressurizing from the US on our relations with Russia.

On the Ukraine issue, China’s position boils down to supporting talks for peace. The international community is fully aware who is calling for dialogue and striving for peace, and who is fanning the flames and stoking confrontation. We urge the US side to seriously reflect on the role it has played, do something to actually help deescalate the situation and promote peace talks, and stop deflecting the blame and spreading disinformation. China will continue to stay firm on the side of peace and dialogue, and play a constructive part in easing the situation.
