German chancellor warns of consequences if China supplies weapons to Russia Against Ukraine2 min read
Berlin. Germany’s Chancellor Olaf Scholz said China would face “consequences” if it provided weapons to Russia for attacks in Ukraine. However, Scholz hoped that China would not do so. The Chancellor of Germany said this on Sunday in an interview given to ‘CNN’ two days after meeting US President Joe Biden in Washington.
US officials recently warned that China may start providing arms and ammunition to Russia. Prior to his visit, Scholz urged China not to send arms and to use its influence to pressure Russia into withdrawing military forces from Ukraine.

Asked if China would impose sanctions if it helped Russia, Scholz said, “I think there will be consequences, but we’re at a stage right now where we’re making it clear that it’s Should not happen and I hope that our request will be accepted in this matter, but we have to keep an eye on it and we have to be very, very careful.
There are signs that China is considering helping Russia: Pentagon
A few days ago, the Pentagon, the headquarters of the US Defense Ministry, also said that there are indications that China is considering helping Russia in the war against Ukraine, which could be disastrous. Pentagon press secretary Brigadier General Pat Ryder said at a press conference, ‘There are indications that they are considering it. I don’t have any additional information or any intelligence in this regard, except the fact that they haven’t abandoned the idea (of helping Russia). I want to make it clear that this would be a wrong decision.
He said that this is something on which the Pentagon is keeping a close watch. Rider had said, ‘We should not forget what the consequences would be if they do this. This will unnecessarily escalate the conflict, resulting in more innocent lives as Russia continues its campaign against Ukrainian citizens.’
