China always opposes unilateral sanctions and actions of long-arm jurisdiction that lack a basis and authorization in international law, the foreign ministry said on Friday.
Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson Wang Wenbin made the remarks at a routine press briefing in Beijing in response to new sanctions against Russia announced at the G7 summit. Russian Prime Minister Mikhail is also scheduled to visit China.
“China always conducts normal economic and trade cooperation on the basis of equality and mutual benefit with countries around the world, including Russia,” Wang said. “The cooperation between China and Russia targets no third party and shall be free from disruption or coercion by any third party.”
