BERLIN, March 1. /TASS/. The European Union so far has no evidence that China supplies any weapons to Russia, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said on Sunday.
"So far, we have no evidence to it, but we must follow the situation daily," she told a joint news conference with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz.
Touching on possible sanctions against Beijing in case of its military assistance to Moscow, she said that "this is a hypothetical question that can be answered only when it becomes real."
The European Commission president took part in a German government meeting on Sunday as a guest of honor.
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken claimed on February 18 that China was considering supplying weapons and munitions to Russia that would be used in Ukraine. Pentagon Spokesperson Patrick Ryder also said that the US military had registered no weapons transfer from China to Russia but did not exclude that China was looking at such an option. In response, Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Mao Ning said that China’s authorities would not tolerate US threats and pressure over alleged military support for Moscow.
