China slams UK over Russia-related sanctions

The Chinese Embassy in the United Kingdom accused the British government on Wednesday of violating international law after three Chinese companies were targeted by sanctions. Earlier today, the UK added 46 individuals and groups from six countries to its sanctions list. Asia Pacific Links Ltd., Sinno Electronics Co. Ltd., and Xinghua Co. Ltd. were on the list for "supplying sanctioned goods, critical for Russia’s war efforts," according to the British government.

The Chinese Embassy said it "firmly opposes the British side's violations of international law, abuse of unilateral sanctions, and damage to the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese companies." It pointed out China's "objective and fair stance" regarding the war in Ukraine, claiming that the UK "ignores domestic and international public opinion and continues to add fuel to the fire," prolonging the conflict. It urged the UK to lift the sanctions immediately.
