China accused Washington of taking advantage from Ukrainian war


(MENAFN) China on Friday blamed Washington of taking advantage from the war in Ukraine as Europe struggles with high inflation and energy crisis in winter.

“The US has made a fortune in the Ukraine crisis, while Europe is bleeding and paying for higher energy prices due to inflation,” on the words of Zhao Lijian, spokesperson for China’s Foreign Ministry.

He was remarking on the US Inflation Reduction Act, legislation inked in August for urgent investments to lower prescription drug prices, health care costs, and energy prices.

Zhao added the US introduced the rule “for its own interests while ignoring the impact on other countries, including its so-called allies and partners.”

“This is another example of the America-first hegemony,” the state-run Global Times newspaper cited Zhao as saying.

“No wonder some European media say that Europe must ask: Why should our peace and prosperity depend on the interests of the US?” according to the spokesman.
