China does not want unilateral sanctions on Russia over Ukraine23 February 2022 ❤ 3
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying Wednesday did not want to impose unilateral sanctions on Russia and repeated resolving the tensions with Ukraine through dialogue and consultation.
"Sanctions have never been an effective way to solve problems, and China has always opposed unilateral sanctions," Hua told a daily press conference when asked if China would join Western countries in sanctioning Russia over Ukraine.
"As the culprit behind the escalated tension between Ukraine and Russia, what role does the U.S. play? What have they done? It is irresponsible and unethical to accuse others of ineffective firefighting while adding fuel to fire."
When talking about China's role in the Ukraine-Russian crisis, Hua said Beijing has been asking for dialogue and negotiations.
The U.S. has spread fear by consistently sending weapons to Ukraine, she said, contrasting with China's call on countries and relevant parties to respect and pay attention to each other's legitimate concerns, to solve the problem through negotiations, and to uphold regional peace and stability jointly.
中国外交部发言人华春莹周三不愿对俄罗斯实施单边制裁，并多次通过对话协商解决中乌紧张局势。 “制裁从来都不是解决问题的有效方式，中国一直反对单边制裁，”当被问及中国是否会在乌克兰问题上与西方国家一道制裁俄罗斯时，华在每日新闻发布会上说。 “作为乌克兰和俄罗斯之间紧张局势升级的罪魁祸首，美国扮演什么角色？他们做了什么？指责别人灭火无效，同时火上浇油，是不负责任和不道德的。” 在谈到中国在乌俄危机中的作用时，华说北京一直在要求对话和谈判。 她说，美方不断向乌克兰提供武器是在制造恐慌，这与中方呼吁各国和有关各方尊重和关注彼此合理关切，通过谈判解决问题，共同维护地区和平稳定形成鲜明对比
