Concerns in China Following Putin's Conversation with Tucker Carlson.

Trending Now

Recent news from Russia has raised serious concerns in China, according to journalists from the People's Republic of China (PRC).

A few days ago, an interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin and American journalist Tucker Carlson was released, garnering significant global attention. The view count for this conversation surpassed one billion, as reported by Chinese journalists, highlighting the interview as particularly effective.

Against the backdrop of the interview, concerns have emerged in China regarding its relationship with Russia, as reported by the publication NetEase according to AB News.

"Will Russia Backstab China?" Chinese journalists are questioning.

NetEase commentators noted that during the interview, Putin highlighted Russia's attempts to establish good relations with the West following the dissolution of the Soviet Union, including considering the possibility of joining NATO.

However, the United States and its allies rejected Moscow's initiatives at that time. Instead, they chose a directly opposite path and began to push Russia away, leading to the current state of severe confrontation between the sides.

Putin also expressed hope for future improvements in Russia-US relations. According to analysts from the Chinese publication, these comments have left China feeling uneasy, leading to speculation about whether Moscow might turn away from Beijing if its relations with Washington improve.

"The situation in the US is such that Biden is losing his stance, while Trump is gaining momentum. Biden's approach is to be tough on both Russia and China. Trump, on the other hand, wants to focus on China and improve relations with Russia," NetEase experts stated.

So, if Trump returns to the White House, could a thaw in Russia-US relations occur without betraying China?
