Communist China Boasts of Deepening Ties with Russia, Blasts US Trade Policy

The Chinese Communist Party’s top diplomat has boasted of China’s deepening ties with Russia as two of America’s greatest adversaries continue to build their alliance.

During a Thursday press briefing, China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi blasted the “unfathomable absurdities” and “bewildering” trade policy from the United States.

He made the comments during China’s annual Foreign Minister’s briefing held during the ongoing “two sessions” gathering of the nation’s rubber-stamp legislature.

Wang charged that America is “devising various tactics to suppress China,” according to Bloomberg.

He argued that Washington D.C.’s “lengthening” unilateral anti-Beijing sanctions list is now at “bewildering levels of unfathomable absurdity.”

China has been pushing and touting high-tech development.

However, this is amid significant barriers erected by the U.S. government.

Questioning the trade between the world’s two largest economies, he said: “If it gets jittery whenever it hears the word China, where is its confidence as a major country?”

He continued by blasting the United States, saying:

“If it only wants itself to prosper, but denies other countries legitimate development, where is international fairness?

“If it persistently monopolizes the high end of the value chain and keeps China at the low end, where is fairness and competition?”

The over four-hour-long engagement with reporters on a wide array of topics is a rare moment of the year.

During the event, the foreign ministry can articulate the country’s foreign policy vision directly to reporters.

However, the briefing is typically highly choreographed.

Therefore, there was deep significance when the first foreign reporter to be called upon for a question was a Russian state media journalist.

Wang praised robust Russian trade ties with China, which have increased in the wake of the Russian invasion of Ukraine over two years ago.

China-Russia trade reached a historic high of $240 billion.

The figure smashed the target of $200 billion which had been set by Presidents Xi and Putin in a 2019 agreement.

“Russian natural gas is fueling numerous Chinese households and Chinese-made automobiles are running on Russian roads,” Wang in the press conference.

“All this shows the strong resilience and broad prospects of China-Russia mutually beneficial cooperation.”

“China and Russia have forged a new paradigm of major country relations that differs entirely from the obsolete Cold War approach on the basis of non-alliance, non-confrontation and not targeting any third party,” he emphasized.

On the question of the Ukraine war, Wang once again urged peace talks and called on all parties to avoid “unthinkable” escalation.

Wang also addressed the issue of rising tensions in East Asian regional waters.

Just this week, tensions were on display in the South China Sea with a collision incident between Chinese and Philippine Coast Guard vessels.

In response, Wang warned outside powers (of course primarily meaning the US) to not interfere and avoid provocations.

“In the face of deliberate infringement, we will take justified actions to defend our rights in accordance with the law,” Wang asserted.

“In the face of unwarranted provocation, we will respond with prompt and legitimate countermeasures.

“We also urge certain countries outside the region, not to make provocations, excite or stir up troubles.”
