Washington DC March 15 2022: Washington says it has warned China that no country will be able to get away with trying to bail out Russia as the Kremlin struggles with the sanctions imposed over its attack on Ukraine.
US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan "raised directly and very clearly" with Beijing his concerns during talks with a leading Chinese diplomat, Yang Jiechi, in Rome, Italy.
He said America was watching very closely the extent to which China was providing any support to President Putin's invasion.
Before the meeting in Rome, US officials said Russia had already asked China for military assistance. Beijing described that US statement as disinformation.
