Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Zhao Lijian blasted Washington’s recent allegations as disinformation that Russia sought military assistance from China to conduct its special operation in Ukraine.
"The allegations on the matter disseminated by the U.S. are false information," the diplomat specified.
He claimed the U.S. is deliberately circulating misinformation about China regarding the developments in Ukraine.
Lijian also noted that China’s stance on Ukraine is coherent and clear. As the spokesperson pointed out, Beijing has always played a constructive role in the process of establishing peace and advancing negotiations.
"Currently, it is essential that all sides exercise restraint, contribute to defusing the situation, and not add fuel to the fire, [but rather] promote a diplomatic settlement of the issue and not its escalation," Zhao Lijian concluded.
