BERLIN, March 13. /ITAR-TASS/. Introducing economic sanctions against Russia over the situation in Ukraine threatens to cause a chain reaction which will be difficult to control, Chinese Ambassador to Germany Shi Mingde told journalists on Thursday.
“We do not see any point in sanctions,” he said. “They can lead to retaliatory actions and launch spiral of unpredictable consequences. We do not want it.”
The ambassador urged all sides to be patient, noting that the door to dialogue should remain open even after Crimea’s referendum on accession to Russia, scheduled for March 16.
“There is still a chance to avoid escalation,” he said. “The door to negotiations is still open. We should use this opportunity after the referendum as well," the ambassador concluded.
