Biden claims that China understands the ramifications of assisting Russia in the Ukraine conflict.
He said on Thursday that China understands that helping Russia fight in Ukraine will have a lot of economic consequences.
At a press conference following the NATO summit to discuss the reaction to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Mr. Biden said, “I believe China recognizes that its economic future is far more intimately linked to the West than it is to Russia.” As a result, I’m hoping he [Chinese President Xi Jinping] doesn’t get married.
Last week, Mr. Biden said he had a “pretty frank conversation” with Mr. Xi about whether the US would help Russia.
He informed Mr. Xi that several American and foreign corporations have fled Russia since its invasion of Ukraine and that any attempt to help Russia would place China in “serious peril.” Mr. Biden repeatedly stated that he had made no threats to Beijing.
