US threats 'unacceptable', we are for peace - China

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian referred on Tuesday to the United States' threats to Beijing regarding a possible breach of Western sanctions against Moscow as ''unacceptable.''

Previously, Washington warned about severe consequences in case China decides to send additional weapons to the Russian forces or engages in circumvention of sanctions in any way.

The Chinese spokesperson reaffirmed his stance that his country has taken ''an objective and fair position'' on the Ukrainian situation, accusing the US of causing the war in Ukraine. ''China stands on the side of peace and justice,'' Zhao emphasized during a regular press briefing.
