The U.S. will not allow other countries to help Russia compensate for losses due to sanctions
The U.S. will not allow any countries to help Russia compensate for its economic losses from the situation around Ukraine and the Western sanctions imposed in connection with it, State Department spokesman Ned Price said Monday.
“We have made it very clear in our contacts to Beijing that we will not allow any countries to compensate Russia for its losses,” Price said during a regular briefing commenting on the ongoing crisis around Ukraine and China’s possible support for Russia’s actions.
In consultations with the Chinese side in Rome, the U.S. delegation “warned Beijing” about the implications of possible support for Russia’s military operation in Ukraine for bilateral relations.
“If the concept of sovereignty means anything in practice to a country like the PRC, we expect China to state and make clear that such a gross violation of sovereignty is unacceptable,” Price said.
