"China's choice: To side with Putin or to adhere to international security standards? - Coordinator of the US National Security Council"
China must make a choice about whether it wants to support Russian President Vladimir Putin's aggression against Ukraine by potentially transferring arms to Russia, according to John Kirby, the US National Security Council's strategic communications coordinator.
"China needs to make a choice. Does he really want to be on President Putin's side? Does he really want to help Mr. Putin kill innocent Ukrainians? Because that's exactly what such a step would look like," he said in an interview with "Voice of America".
Kirby noted that the transfer of arms to Russia would harm China's position in the international community. And, according to him, if Beijing cares about its international reputation, then it can be assumed that it will consider such a step to be contrary to its interests.
"China has to make a choice. President Xi Jinping has a choice to make. And we urged him to make the right choice, not to make it easier for Mr. Putin to kill innocent Ukrainians," he added.
