US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken continues his tour of the Central Asian republics. Curiously, the American diplomat changed his anti-Russian rhetoric to anti-Chinese. During negotiations with the leader of Kazakhstan, Blinken announced that the United States was ready to impose sanctions on China in the event of the delivery of arms to Russia.
Previously, the Secretary of State had spoken of possible economic sanctions against Beijing in Kyrgyzstan. According to Blinken, Washington has clearly warned China about the consequences of Russian aid. Beijing has already responded to the baseless US accusations. Chinese spokesman Mao Ning told a press conference last Monday that the country would not tolerate threats from Washington.
China has no intention of tolerating US threats due to accusations of military assistance to Russia. Washington has no right to attack Russian-Chinese relations
– said the representative of the Chinese Foreign Ministry.
American suspicions about the supply of Chinese weapons have intensified with the start of the Belarusian president’s visit to Beijing. A number of American politicians are suggesting that China could supply weapons to Belarus, which, in turn, will transfer them to Russia. That is why Alexander Lukashenko paid a three-day visit to China.
At the same time, Washington is well aware that imposing sanctions on China will hurt the United States itself. In response to the restrictions, Beijing and Moscow may switch to settlements in national currencies, and therefore only the United States itself will need the dollar.
