China: US should not label Russia as terrorist state

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian said on Monday that Washington should promote a dialogue between Russia and Ukraine, instead of labeling Russia as a sponsor of terrorism.

"Washington should take more steps which will positively impact a political settlement," stated Lijian.

The Chinese diplomat emphasized that Beijing sees a peace agreement as the only effective solution to the Ukrainian crisis.

His comments follow speaker of the United States House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi's comments that the legislative branch of the US will label the Russian Federation as a terrorism sponsor. Pelosi is set to visit Taiwan soon.
