Beijing expresses strong protest in connection with the European Union’s initiative to impose restrictions on three Chinese companies working with Russia, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People’s Republic of China said.
“China resolutely opposes illegal sanctions <...> against China, caused by cooperation between China and Russia,” Bloomberg quotes a statement from the Chinese Foreign Ministry.
The Chinese Foreign Ministry called the interference of “third parties” in relations between Beijing and Moscow unacceptable and stated that if sanctions are imposed, China will take measures to protect the rights and interests of its enterprises.
“Chinese and Russian enterprises carry out normal exchanges and cooperation and do not target third parties, and should not be interfered or influenced by third parties,” the department said in a statement.
Earlier, media reported that the European Union may impose restrictions on companies from China, India and Turkey as part of new sanctions against Russia. Previously, Brussels’ proposals to introduce measures against Chinese enterprises met resistance from some European countries.
Let us remind you that EU High Representative for Foreign Policy and Security Josep Borrell reported that the new package of restrictions will include measures against companies from different countries “that are involved in circumventing sanctions against the Russian Federation.”
