BEIJING, February 9. /TASS/. China is against Washington’s plans to provide Ukraine with weapons, the country’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said on Monday.
"China calls for the political settlement of the crisis in Ukraine as this meets the interests of all the sides. People in eastern Ukraine now are more in need of peace rather than weapons," the diplomat stressed, commenting on the US plans.
Beijing welcomes and supports the active mediation efforts, which have been recently taken by the parties to ease tensions in eastern Ukraine and resolve the crisis by political means, she said.
China urges all the sides to refrain from any actions that could lead to an increase in confrontation or affect the negotiation process, the Chinese Foreign Ministry’s spokesperson said.
"China will continue playing a constructive role in the political settlement of the crisis in Ukraine," the diplomat said.
Last Sunday, the New York Times newspaper reported that the Unites States considered supplying arms to Ukrainian forces. The Russian Foreign Ministry’s official spokesman, Alexander Lukashevich, said last week Moscow was seriously concerned by these plans.
