Josep Borrel warned China against supplying weapons to Russia

The head of European diplomacy, Josep Borrel, called on China to refrain from supplying weapons to Russia. He made such a statement at the Munich Security Conference. China agreed.

Josep Borrel said that Beijing's arms supplies would be a "red line" in relations with Brussels. "I expressed our serious concern about the supply of weapons to Russia from China and asked not to do this," he said.

The issues of arms supplies were discussed with Wang Yi , a member of the Politburo of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China . The representative of China assured that the country does not intend to supply weapons to Russia.

It's worth reminding that a day earlier, the United States accused China of secretly supplying "non-lethal military aid," in particular, military uniforms and bulletproof vests. In addition, as stated by US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, the supply of Chinese weapons to Russia in the future is not excluded. The United States threatened the country with the loss of foreign investment if this information is confirmed. Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky said that Kiev has no evidence of China providing military assistance to Russia.
