China condemns NATO accusations of backing Russia amid Ukraine war


(MENAFN) In a strongly worded statement on Monday, China condemned NATO for what it described as "inciting confrontation" and exaggerating the perceived threat posed by Beijing. This response came after NATO leaders expressed deep concerns over China's close ties with Russia, particularly in providing significant support amidst Russia's conflict with Ukraine.

The Chinese mission to the European Union expressed "strong dissatisfaction" with NATO's recent statement, characterizing it as laden with Cold War-era rhetoric and hostile accusations. The statement issued by NATO leaders was criticized by China for allegedly painting an unfair picture and being rife with slander.

China asserted its longstanding stance of advocating for peace talks between Russia and Ukraine while pledging not to supply lethal weaponry to Moscow. Additionally, Beijing emphasized its commitment to respecting the territorial integrity of all nations, including Ukraine. The Chinese statement underscored that it maintains stringent controls over the export of dual-use products, including civilian drones, refuting any allegations of contributing to military escalation in the region.

Moreover, the Chinese mission's statement posed pointed questions regarding the handling of the Ukrainian crisis, insinuating that certain parties may be exacerbating tensions for their own gain. China's stance, as articulated in the statement, positions itself as a proponent of stability and peace, urging NATO to refrain from escalating rhetoric and instead contribute constructively to global peace efforts.
