China considers supplying Russia with lethal aid in Ukraine war
A simple account of the facts sourced from a diverse range of political perspectives.
The United States is increasingly concerned that China may provide lethal weapons to Russia for the ongoing conflict in Ukraine. CIA Director William Burns confirmed in an interview on February 27 that the US is “confident” that the Chinese leadership is considering providing lethal equipment to Russia. The US and NATO have warned China against such a move. Chinese officials have dismissed the accusations. The European Union's top foreign affairs official, Josep Borrell, also spoke with China's top diplomat and noted that China has said it will not provide arms to Russia because it is part of their foreign policy not to arm parties in a conflict. The conflict between Ukraine and Russia started in 2014 and has escalated over the past year. In recent months, US officials have downgraded the classification level of intelligence on China’s thinking to share it with allies across the world. The US has provided Ukraine with billions of dollars in weapons since the start of the conflict. The United Nations General Assembly is set to vote on a draft resolution calling for a "comprehensive, just and lasting peace" and demanding Russia withdraw its troops from Ukraine.
