BEIJING, October 24. /TASS/. The Chinese government will not join economic sanctions against Russia over the events in Ukraine, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying told TASS on Friday.
She commented on a statement by Paul Jones, US Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State in the Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs.
“We come against any sanctions or threats because they are not an effective method of solving problems. We believe that the political settlement of the situation in Ukraine is the only right way of solving problems,” Hua Chunying said.
“China supports the efforts by the parties involved in the Ukrainian issue to improve the dialogue in order to search for comprehensive political settlement that will meet the interests of all sides,” she said.
“The Asian countries have their own view on the Ukrainian problem. But China is sure that sanctions are useless,” Hua said.
In an interview with Japan’s largest business newspaper, the Nikkei, Jones said the US intended to influence the Asian countries in order to convince them to join economic sanctions against Russia due to the events around Ukraine.
