The Chinese Foreign Ministry urged not to interfere in bilateral relations between Beijing and Moscow.

Third parties have no right to interfere in bilateral relations between China and Russia, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said at a briefing on Friday.

Earlier, US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen threatened China with “serious consequences” if it assists Russia in the conflict in Ukraine. Washington will continue “to communicate the US position extremely clearly to Beijing and companies in its jurisdiction, the consequences of any violations will be severe,” Yellen said.

“China and Russia have always adhered to the principles of non-alignment, non-confrontation and non-targeting of third parties, and have developed a new type of relationship between large countries based on mutual respect, peaceful coexistence and mutually beneficial cooperation,” the diplomat said.

Wang Wenbin stressed that relations between Beijing and Moscow are fundamentally different from the “small circles” and “bloc confrontation” that the United States is engaged in.

“No state has the right to interfere (in relations between Russia and China),” he said.


The diplomat noted that China has always taken an objective and fair position regarding the Ukrainian crisis, actively promoted peace talks and played a constructive role in the political settlement of the crisis.
