China Says It Will Never Support Sanctions Against Russia


China Says It Will Never Support Sanctions Against Russia (ZeroHedge, Sep 24, 2014):

We already know that Obama’s definition of “costs” leaves something to be desired. Apparent so does his definition of “isolation”, used for example, here:

Russia is already more isolated than at any time since the Cold War” – President Obama, August 2014

Well, maybe not. From Itar-Tass

China will never support or join recently imposed sanctions against Russia, Valentina Matviyenko, the speaker of the Russian parliament’s upper chamber, said on Tuesday following her talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping. 

The speaker of the Federation Council quoted the Chinese president as saying, that China will never support sanctions against Russia, no matter how much pressure is exerted on them.

According to Matviyenko, China publicly stated its opinion on the inadmissibility of unilateral sanctions, their illegitimacy and counter-productivity.

“This is where our positions absolutely coincide,” she said adding that both Russia and China consider such sanctions as “ineffective and view them as attempts to exert pressure on sovereign states in order to weaken them and change their positions, to restrain their development.”

“This is China’s public position and we are grateful to China for such evaluations,” Matviyenko, who is currently on an official visit to China, said.

Because with such unprecedented “isolation”, who needs the world’s biggest alliance of natural resources, human capital, fixed investment and a population of over 1.5 billion?

Oh, and for the record Mr. President, feel free to read up on the Sino-Soviet split, where China couldn’t stand the USSR and vice versa… during the Cold War.

  1. No kidding. China is in with Russia with their new economy. The C in BRICS stands for China. Putin has brilliantly created a similar economy to the western model, only with more flexibility in the use of currency…….making it easier for all nations. The only one getting hurt is the US because they have ridden on being world reserve currency nation since WW2. They have abused the hell out of it, and 67% of nations no longer use the dollar.

    The EU is what is keep the dollar afloat. Should they go with BRICS as Switzerland just did, the dollar will collapse.
    No kidding is all I can say in relation to this article.

  2. For a long time it is remarkable that western media always talking about a worldwide sanction against ….. or the world does not want.. and mostly it is meant the european world=canada, australia, usa, uk and eu. It is arrogant and will lead to many more conflicts.

  3. To Henk: You are quite correct, but it is only western media, now bought and paid for by a few major corporations. Less and less people even tune in to them. In my opinion, too many still do, but the narrow, trite stuff they cover is turning off many more, even politically ignorant people see they are being fed garbage.
    For centuries the UK was the ruler. Then the staff of power was passed to the US after WW2. Then, the US ruled. Now, the east is rising and the west is falling, it seems to happen every thousand years.
