World Latest News Updates: China’s failure to express a firm condemnation of Russia goes against all Beijing stands for: WH1 min read
Joe Biden will contact Chinese President Xi Jinping on Friday to discuss the two nations’ economic competitiveness as well as Russia’s conflict with Ukraine. The White House has chastised China for failing to issue a firm condemnation of Russia’s actions in Ukraine, claiming that it contradicts everything Beijing stands for.
“Of certainly, there has been verbal support, or the absence of strong condemnation and denunciation,” said Jen Psaki, White House Press Secretary.
It also says a lot not just in Russia and Ukraine, but all throughout the world. In Ukraine, more than three weeks of fighting have resulted in a humanitarian disaster. Over 2 million Ukrainians have fled their nation, according to the United Nations. Foreign Minister Wang Jiechi branded Russia as Beijing’s “most important strategic partner” at a press conference held on the sidelines of China’s ceremonial parliament’s annual meeting earlier this month. Over 2 million Ukrainians have fled their nation, according to the UN, and the figure is set to rise.
