China Won’t Transfer Weapons to Russia

Xi Jinping personally assured Antony Blinken of non-participation in sponsoring the Russian military machine

On June 19, talks were held in Beijing between US foreign minister Antony Blinken and China president Xi Jinping. The parties discussed China's participation in Russia's war against Ukraine, and Jinping said that his state would not provide Russia with weapons. CNN reports that despite the president's unequivocal response, the United States still has doubts about Chinese non-intervention.

"What we do have ongoing concerns about, though, are Chinese firms — companies that may be providing technology that Russia can use to advance its aggression in Ukraine. And we've asked the Chinese government to be very vigilant about that," Antony Blinken.

"This is something that China has said in recent weeks and has repeatedly said not only to us, but to many other countries that have raised this concern," added the minister.

This is the first high-level talks between the US and China since 2018. We remind you that Blinken had talks with Chinese foreign minister Qin Gang this morning.
