April 16, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Zhao Lijian held a regular press conference.
Asked by reporters, the White House said in a statement on the 15th, Biden signed an executive order to Russia’s interference in the U.S. election, large-scale cyberattacks against the United States and other hostile actions, the implementation of a new round of sanctions against Russia.
The United States and the European Union, Australia, the United Kingdom and Canada announced sanctions against eight individuals and entities linked to Russia’s occupation of Crimea. The United States expelled 10 Russian diplomats working in Washington.
The Russian side immediately summoned the U.S. ambassador to Russia, said Russia will take a series of countermeasures. What is China’s comment on this?
Zhao said that both Russia and the United States are permanent members of the UN Security Council, both major powers with important influence in the world and have important responsibilities for international peace and security.
We hope that the parties will resolve their differences through consultation and dialogue.
The use of unilateral sanctions in international relations, or the threat of sanctions, is an act of bullying that is increasingly resisted and opposed by the international community.
