China accuses US of disinformation ahead of Ukraine war talks – POLITICO

Beijing on Monday accused the United States of spreading “false information” about Russia’s request for China’s help in its war against Ukraine, raising diplomatic heat before two top envoys from China and the United States began to speak. negotiations in Rome.

Washington put pressure on Beijing on Sunday, with several media outlets, including POLITICO, reported that Russia had requested military assistance from Beijing, citing US officials. It is not clear what assistance Russia is seeking.

That revelation came shortly before US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan and his Chinese counterpart, Politburo member Yang Jiechi, arrived at the Waldorf Astoria hotel in Rome for talks on the Ukraine crisis. as well as US-China relations.

China is going tight as its strongest strategic partner, Russia, becomes increasingly isolated on the world stage. While Beijing forges strong ties with Moscow, it also doesn’t want those ties to affect key trading relationships with wealthy Western economies that are sanctioning Russia.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian, without referring to reports of Russia’s request for help, said at a regular news conference: “The US has been spreading disinformation aimed at China on the issue. Ukraine, with bad intentions.”

Earlier on Sunday, Sullivan told CNN’s “State of the Union” “We are talking directly, privately with Beijing that there will be consequences for efforts to evade large-scale sanctions or assist Russia to cover them up. We will not allow that to continue and allow a relief for Russia from economic sanctions from any country in the world.”

In the first day of this month, New York Times also reported that China asked Russia to delay the war until the end of the Winter Olympics, which Chinese diplomats also dismissed as disinformation.

China, on the other hand, is echoing Russian claims that the US has funded biological eateries in Ukraine, which the US also dismisses as disinformation.
