Beijing denied the validity of US statements about China's discussion of the possibility of supplying weapons to Russia for its war against Ukraine, stressing the call for dialogue to end the conflict.

On Sunday, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said that China was "now considering providing lethal support" to Moscow, ranging from "ammunition and weapons."

In response to a question about the American statements, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said, in a press conference yesterday, Monday, that "it is the United States that sends weapons to the battlefield without stopping, not China."

The Chinese diplomat added that his country urges the United States to reflect on its actions, do more to improve the situation and promote peace and dialogue, and stop evading responsibility and spreading false information."
