BEIJING – Beijing denounced the claims United States of America (US), that China are considering sending weapons to Russia to help his war in Ukraine.
“It is the United States and not China that is relentlessly sending weapons to the battlefield,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said when asked about the US claims.

“We urge the US to seriously reflect on its own actions and do more to alleviate the situation, promote peace and dialogue, and stop shifting blame and spreading false information,” Wenbin continued.
“It is clear to the international community who is calling for dialogue and fighting for peace, and who is adding fuel to the fire and encouraging the opposition,” he added.
The remarks came after US Secretary of State Antony Blinken told CBS in an interview that China was now “considering providing lethal support” to Moscow ranging from “munitions to the weapons themselves.”

He made similar comments in a series of interviews from Germany, where on Saturday he attended the Munich Security Conference and met his Chinese counterpart, Wang Yi.
Blinken’s allegations come as relations between China and the United States have become increasingly strained after Washington shot down what it said was a Chinese spy balloon earlier this month.
The United States has repeatedly warned China against providing support to Russia for its war in Ukraine, which is approaching its one-year anniversary.
