China Signals Willingness to Intervene Militarily in Support of Russia Against US or NATO Actions.

Trending Now

In a recent statement that has raised eyebrows across the international community, a representative from China's Ministry of Defense reportedly declared Beijing's readiness to intervene militarily should the United States or NATO launch an attack on Russia. This is reported by Newsbytes and Times Now.

The statement from the Chinese defense representative, as quoted by the Telegram channel, WW3.INFO, was unequivocal:

"China is ready to intervene militarily anywhere if the US or NATO decide to attack Russia." Efforts to confirm the authenticity of this claim with the department are currently underway.

This development comes in the wake of Russian President Vladimir Putin's stark warning to NATO and Western countries. Putin cautioned that Moscow was prepared for nuclear war should the US deploy troops to Ukraine. The Russian leader's comments were made in the lead-up to the March 15-17 election, anticipated to extend his tenure by another six years.

Putin sought to downplay the immediacy of a nuclear conflict, suggesting that, aside from US President Joe Biden, there are numerous experts in Russian-American relations and strategic restraint. "So I don’t think that everything is going to go head-on here, but we are ready for it,” Putin remarked.

Amid these escalating tensions, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg has urged alliance members to expedite the delivery of additional ammunition to Ukraine. This plea comes as the US Congress debates the provision of billions of dollars in aid to Kyiv, highlighting the complex web of international relations and military alliances at play.
