Stop offering military assistance to either side: Former editor of China’s state media

1 min read

            Hu Xijin, the former editor of China’s state-run daily Global Times, has declared that China and the US must achieve an agreement in which all countries agree to cease funnelling military aid to both Ukraine and China.

His remark came only hours after the US warned Beijing that it would “definitely” suffer consequences if it assisted Moscow in evading broad sanctions related to the Ukraine conflict.

According to US officials, Russia has urged China for military assistance to back their invasion of Ukraine, raising concerns that Beijing’s assistance may hinder Western attempts to assist Ukrainian soldiers in defending their nation.

The Global Times is well-known for its aggressive nationalist stance.

A representative for China’s embassy in Washington, however, stated that he had “never heard of such”.
