China providing ‘lethal support’ to Russia in war against Ukraine: US

China providing ‘lethal support’ to Russia in war against Ukraine will have ‘serious consequences’ on bilateral ties with US: Blinken


Washington:  US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has warned China that providing “lethal support” for Russia’s war against Ukraine will have “serious consequences” on bilateral ties between the two countries and asserted Beijing’s balloon incursion “must never happen again.” Blinken and Wang Yi, the Chinese Communist Party’s senior-most foreign policy official, held hourlong talks in Munich on Saturday, where they were attending an international security conference, according to the US State Department.

The two high-profile diplomats met in their first high-level contact since the US shot down an alleged Chinese spy balloon a fortnight ago.

“I made very clear to him that China sending a surveillance balloon over the US, in violation of our sovereignty, in violation of international law, was unacceptable, and must never happen again,” Blinken told News Media in an interview.
