A Chinese demand that external parties not interfere in cooperation with Russia

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said that third countries should not undermine trade and economic relations between Beijing and Moscow.
Zhao Lijian said in a press conference on Tuesday: “China will never accept such illegal, unilateral sanctions, and the normal trade and economic cooperation between China and Russia should not be disrupted or exposed to interference by any third party.”
He also stressed that Beijing will take measures to protect the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese companies.
Reuters reported last week that G7 countries may issue a “stern warning” to small Chinese banks allegedly helping Moscow circumvent sanctions.
Western media also said that the G7 leaders will discuss during their summit in Italy between June 13 and 15 this year “the threat emanating from the evolving trade of Russia and China.”
For its part, the White House confirmed the readiness of Washington and its allies to take secondary restrictive measures against banks and financial institutions in order to “prevent Russia from circumventing Western sanctions.”
Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova described the American plans to obstruct its trade with China as interference in the relations of sovereign countries.
