China's view on oil and gas sanctions against Russia.

United States President Joe Biden announced a ban on Russian oil and gas imports. The European Commission published plans to cut EU dependency on Russian gas by two thirds this year. The United Kingdom announced it will phase out Russian oil imports within the year. Today (Wednesday 6 Adar II 5782) Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Zhao Lijian said "China firmly reject unilateral sanctions that have no basis in international law. The willful wielding of the big stick of sanctions can never guarantee peace and security, but will only bring serious difficulties to the economy and people's livelihood of relevant countries and regions, lead to a lose-lose situation and further escalate division and confrontation. China and Russia always maintain sound energy cooperation and will continue to conduct normal trade cooperation including on gas and oil in the spirit of mutual respect, equality and mutual benefit.".
