The war news continues to be bleak. China has now announced that it is ready to “join forces with Russia” against the United States repeated warnings.
Washington’s repeat warnings to Beijing against strategic or military cooperation with Moscow have fallen on deaf ears. China is now pledging to “join forces” with “like-minded” partner Russia to defend national interests. Neither country appears to see the U.S. as a threat to anything they want to do, while the U.S. seems intent upon starting a third world war.
The statement came by the close of the first day of the director of the Office of the Foreign Affairs Commission of the Communist Party of China’s Central Committee Wang Yi’s trip to Moscow, according to a report by ZeroHedge.
“The People’s Republic of China is ready to join forces with Russia to decisively stand up for national interests and promote mutually beneficial cooperation in all areas,” Wang said Tuesday while meeting with Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolay Patrushev, according to Russian media outlet Tass. On Wednesday he met with Russian President Vladimir Putin in what appeared a warm and cooperative visit.
“During a virtual meeting at the end of last year, our leaders [Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin] came up with a plan for further development of bilateral relations. We are ready to join forces with the Russian side, in accordance with the high-level agreements, to decisively stand up for national interests and virtues, and promote mutually beneficial cooperation in all areas,” the Chinese diplomat’s statement said.
He additionally said China will “together with all like-minded partners further promote the development of the international order in the direction of equitable development.”
“It’s necessary to unlock the potential of this mechanism, and it’s also necessary to develop new steps of strategic interaction in accordance with the changing situation in order to provide the necessary guarantees for national development,” Wang added. “I want to fully join your appreciation of the strategic cooperation between the two countries.”
The Kremlin praised Wang’s stance in response, with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov welcoming “China’s balanced position on the Ukraine issue.” He further declared that “ours and China’s vision is much the same” concerning the crisis.

As China and Russia’s alliance strengthens, the U.S.’s dominance and empire are threatened. This is going to come to a head in the form of war unless we all can stand up and refuse to kill and be killed at the whims of the ruling class.
