US Warns China Against Supporting Russia's War Effort In Ukraine

US Warns China Against Supporting Russia's War Effort In Ukraine

The United States on Monday warned China against providing support to Russia’s war effort in Ukraine saying there will be “consequences” if Beijing provides Moscow with any sort of help.

The warning was delivered by US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan to the director of China’s Office of the Foreign Affairs Commission Yang Jiechi during a meeting in Rome.

Speaking to reporters on Monday, State Department spokesperson Ned Price also described Russia’s invasion of Ukraine as “Putin’s war of choice”. Said Price:

We are watching very closely the extent to which the PRC [the People’s Republic of China] or any country in the world provides support – material, economic, financial, rhetorical, otherwise – to this war of choice that President [Vladimir] Putin is waging.

And we have been very clear – both privately with Beijing, publicly with Beijing – that there would be consequences for any such support.

Russia invaded Ukraine on 24 February following several months of a troop build-up near the Ukrainian border.

Russia demanded an end to NATO expansion into former Soviet republics and accused Ukraine of committing genocide in its Donbas region where a sizeable number of Russian-speaking Ukrainians live.

The war has pushed more than 2.8 million people to flee Ukraine, according to the United Nations.

The invasion prompted a swift sanctions campaign by the US and its allies against Russia.

A day before the meeting between Sullivan and Yang, several US media outlets reported that Moscow was seeking military assistance from Beijing.

In a statement on Sunday, Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian appeared to dismiss those reports without mentioning them specifically. He said:

The US has been spreading disinformation targeting China on the Ukraine issue, with malicious intentions.

@ Tinmike, sorry I think Sadam Hussein got what he deserved. as for Qaddafi, ditto. USA helped liberate Kuwait.

What's wrong with that?

As regards Ukraine, USA is helping containing a psychopath called Putin. Nothing wrong with that either. what exactly is your beef with USA?

in Zimbabwe the US and some western nations are the only ones standing against the ZANU tyranny. Kudos to them

Iwe @ Elyse, in Zimbambwe, as well as in many other African countries, its the Chinese who are exploiting our natural resources. And behind them are the illegitimate rulers who are benefiting from these deals. Can you name one mine or mineral being exploited by the Americans in Zimbabwe?

UKRAINE PRESIDENT WAS FOOLED BY THE EUROPEAN UNION AND THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. HE THOUGHT THE EU BLOCK, PARTICULARLY NATO, AND THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA WERE GOING TO SUPPLY WEAPONS AND HUMAN RESOURCES.

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND EU DECLINED TO SEND MANPOWER SAYING UKRAINE WAS NOT YET A EUROPEAN UNION MEMBER. THEY ALSO REFUSED TO DECLARE UKRAINE AIR SPACE NO GO AREA FOR RUSSIA.

CHINA IS BEING WARNED OF 'CONSEQUENCES' IF IT ASSISTS RUSSIA. HERE IT IS THREATENING CHINA WITH SANCTIONS. REMEMBER THAT CHINA HAS HAUWEI AND TIK TOK WHATSAPP PLATFORM IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA..

TWO WEEKS BEFORE RUSSIA ATTACKED UKRAINE, PUTIN HAD MET CHINESE PRESIDENT. THEY PLANNED TOGETHER.

CHINA HAS ITS PROBLEMS WITH TAIWAN WHICH IT CLAIMS IT IS PART OF CHINA. TAIWAN IS PROTECTED BY AMERICA.

WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE IS WHAT HAPPENED IN 1960 WHEN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA ATTACKED CUBA ON THE GROUNDS THAT IT HAD GIVEN PERMISSION TO RUSSIA TO BUILD ITS BASE IN CUBA.

RUSSIA IS DESTROYING UKRAINE. I SUPPORT WHAT THE FRENCH, HUNGARIANS AND THE GERMANS ARE SAYING. THEY PREFER DIALOGUE RATHER THAN SANCTIONS WHICH THEY ARE PILING ON RUSSIA. ABOUT 40% OF EU AND UNITED
STATES OF AMERACAA OIL AND GAS COME FROM RUSSIA. THEREFORE SANCTIONING RUSSIA IS LIKE SANCTIONING THEMSELVES.

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA HAS APPROACHED VENEZUELA, ITS ENEMY NUMBER ONE IN SOUTH AMERICA, SEEKING TO BUY ITS OIL. THIS IS WHY I SAY IN POLITICS THERE ARE NO PERMANENT FRIENDS OR ENEMIES.

[ DO NOT VOTE ZANU PF. DO NOT VOTE MWONZORA. VOTE CCC FOR REAL CHANGE ].

@Tinmike, China is NOT going to give Putin armaments. They are also scared of sanctions from the west

One cant make a fair analysis when all is pushed is western propaganda, so many choose to support USA because of what they have been fed on the news channels, most people are lazy to actually do some research on their own, some of us see right through the USA bias, Putin knew exactly what he was going in for when he started this war, he is a decisive leader something that African countries desperately need not the bootlicking western countries like Zambian president. no amount of sanctions will make Putin stop this war, India, China alone can help him sustain this fight

Machiavelli 4 months ago

@ Maparamuro, it's not about brainwashing. In any conflict/confrontation one chooses sides depending on what they perceive as right. In this case, many (including myself) see Putin as the bully who trampled on the rights of Ukrainians an attacked without provocation.

Whether Putin was worried about Russian security in light of NATO bordering on Russia, there were other alternatives, such as UN to deliberate and mediate, but no, he had to play the gaucho, the cowboy and invade Ukraine. And very ****Lynn for him, he didn't have a plan for a quick victory he didn't have enough manpower (now he is appealing for mercenaries), he didn't have enough war material (hence the appeal to China to provide him with armaments). Lastly his economy couldn't sustain the war, and unfortunately for him, the world slapped sanctions against him and now he can't withdraw with dignity.

Sanctions dzakamubata panyama nhete.
