China warned Kerry; sanctions against Russia stupid idea
“Sanctions could lead to retaliatory action, and that would trigger a spiral with unforeseeable consequences,” warns China’s envoy to Germany adding that “we don’t see any point in sanctions.”
China’s top envoy to Germany has warned the West against illegal sanctions on Russia for its help in Ukraine, saying such measures could lead to a dangerous chain reaction that would be difficult to control.
Ambassador Shi Mingde issued the strongest warning against such measures by any top Chinese official to date. “We don’t see any point in sanctions,” “Sanctions could lead to retaliatory action, and that would trigger a spiral with unforeseeable consequences. We don’t want this.”
China in our opinion will not abandon Russia; they are the only force strong enough to counter USA hegemony. An alternative to SWIFT is being built, a new credit card system is in place in China, and a new Bank to compete with the World Bank and IMF has been created. These changes will all serve to challenge and eventually destroy the status quo. It looks like China’s warning’s were warranted as even Kerry now feels that Europe will soon lose appetite for these sanctions that they were bullied into and that are costing them a fortune.
