China Warns NATO Country.

Trending Now

The Chinese dictatorship is greatly upset.

The reason is that one of NATO's most powerful members, the United Kingdom, has decided to announce new sanctions against China.

The sanctions in question are directed at 'individuals and groups that support and finance Putin's war machine'.

However, China claims that the United Kingdom is violating international law and is now warning the NATO country, as reported by Sky News.

Threatens to Retaliate

The Chinese Embassy in the United Kingdom asserts that any measures that harm China's interests 'will be met with a firm response'.

In a statement, they insist that China has remained neutral in Russia's war against Ukraine.

'Correct your mistakes and withdraw the sanctions against Chinese companies,' warns the embassy according to the British TV channel.

Reports: Sending Weapons to Russia

China, which claims to maintain an objective stance in the war in Ukraine, has been repeatedly exposed for supporting Russia in various ways.

This spring, the so-called Pentagon leak revealed that the Chinese regime had approved weapon deliveries to Russia on the condition that all transports remain secret.

According to the newspaper Politico, China has sent automatic weapons, military equipment, and drone parts to the Russian army in Ukraine.

In total, the United Kingdom's new package includes 46 sanctions that, in addition to China, also target companies in Belarus, Serbia, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, and Uzbekistan.

'Countries that continue to support Russia's illegal invasion of Ukraine,' emphasizes the British government in a statement.

'Hits Putin Where It Hurts'

According to the United Kingdom, the sanctions will be effective.

'We will increase the pressure on Putin and crack down on third parties providing prohibited goods and technology to Russia, wherever they are,' says Anne-Marie Trevelyan, Minister for the Indo-Pacific region, according to Sky News.

'Today's sanctions will hit Putin where it hurts, damage Russian defense systems and crack down on illegal supply chains supporting Russia's war machine.'"
