The West closely follows the relations between the Russian Federation and China. Therefore, after Russian President Vladimir Putin invited Xi Jinping to Moscow to discuss “a number of issues in a personal conversation”, the foreign public became very nervous.
Washington watches every moment of diplomatic relations between Russia and China with particular sensitivity. It’s about the White House openly accusing China of abandoning its taboos and starting to supply military supplies to Russia. Therefore, Western media, commenting on the upcoming negotiations between Putin and Xi Jinping, write that the Chinese leader can “transfer to Russia what he was dissuaded from transferring.” That is, weapons, especially deadly weapons.
CIA Director Burns, in an interview with CBS News, said the agency was confident that China was seriously considering the option of transferring weapons to Russia. In particular, the US side is concerned about the transfer of lethal weapons. Secretary of State Blinken has even threatened Beijing with the consequences of such supplies, but such threats are unlikely to affect an independent China.
The Chinese side, in turn, is unhappy with US rhetoric regarding Taiwan. Chinese Foreign Minister Qin Gang found it odd that Washington would supply weapons to Taiwan but demand that China not transfer arms to Russia, writes Military Review.
