Josep Borrell: The EU has no evidence that China supplies weapons to Russia

China described as "hypocrisy" and "double standards" the attitude of the United States that provides military aid to Ukraine while criticizing the usual cooperation between Russia and the Asian country.

La European Union (EU) has no evidence that China provides weapons to Russia, declared the head of European diplomacy, Josep Borrell, at the Shangri-La Dialogue summit in Singapore.

“China promised not to supply weapons (to Russia) and we have no evidence that this is happening,” Borrell highlighted.

According to the head of EU diplomacy, there is no clear dividing line between weapons and non-weapons because “some goods have a dual purpose.”

In addition, he pointed to the growing volume of trade between Moscow and Beijing in recent years, and added that Brussels tries to ensure that these types of products do not reach Russia from the European Union.

In April, the spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Asian country, Wang Wenbin, indicated that the United States was providing military aid to Ukraine while criticizing the usual cooperation between Russia and China, which he described as “hypocrisy” and “a typical example of double standard".

The Russian Foreign Ministry, in turn, described the data on Beijing's aid as “disinformation.” The spokesman for the Russian Presidency, Dmitri Peskov, commented that he had “nothing to add” to the Chinese side's position.
