The United States is not qualified to issue orders for arms supplies in Ukraine, according to China

US not qualified to issue orders on arms supply in Ukraine: China

 China resisted the US claims on Monday, claiming that the Biden administration was spreading lies and defending its close relationship with Russia.

The remarks were made by a spokesperson for the Chinese ministry of foreign affairs. They were part of a series of diplomatic moves made by Xi Jinping, the leader of China. He is trying to keep ties with Russia's President Vladimir Putin while portraying Beijing as an innocent bystander to Russia's invasion of Ukraine and only trying to get Moscow and Kiev to talk peace.

Antony Blinken, the US secretary of state, said over the weekend that he had evidence that Beijing was "considering providing lethal support to Russia in its aggression against Ukraine" and was leaning more toward Putin. According to Blinken, he had informed his Chinese counterpart that if that were to occur, there would be severe consequences.

When questioned about the allegations made by Blinken, a spokesperson for the Chinese ministry of foreign affairs named Wang Wenbin suggested that, on the contrary, it was the United States that was inciting violence in Ukraine. "The US is not qualified to issue any orders to China, and the US has been incessantly supplying weapons to the battlefield," Wang stated at a regular news conference in Beijing. Wang added, "stop shirking responsibility and disseminating fake news" in Washington. China will continue to firmly support the peace and dialogue sides."

China's supply of weapons to Russia would put Russia at risk of becoming embroiled in a conflict with Ukraine and the US-led NATO on one side and Russia and China on the other.

Meanwhile, China's top diplomat is scheduled to visit Moscow later on Monday and may even meet with President Putin. Wang Yi, China's top diplomat, made the accusation that the United States was acting "hysterically" in violation of international law after they clashed over the shooting down of balloons over the US. "Think calmly" about how to end the war, Wang advised European nations, and Beijing promised to present "China's position on the political settlement of the Ukraine crisis." Dmitry Peskov, a spokesperson for the Kremlin, confirmed Wang's planned trip to Moscow but did not specify a date.
