Kremlin stated that the additional anti-Russian sanctions imposed by the US undermine international stability.
“It would be good if they remembered the notion of global stability, which they are thoughtlessly undermining by forcing tension in Russian-American relations,” stated the Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov. “Playing with fire is stupid because it can become dangerous.”
Meanwhile, the Chinese Foreign Ministry on Friday urged the US to lift the sanctions against the Chinese armed forces imposed by the Trump administration in response to Beijing purchasing fighter jets and missile systems from Russia.
The official spokesperson for the Foreign Ministry, Geng Shuang, made this statement during the daily press briefing in Beijing.
The US claims that the Chinese armed forces have violated the sanctions regime imposed on Moscow in response to interference in the 2016 election.
