China refrains from supplying arms to Russia after Biden's call

Washington Post columnist David Ignatius, citing unnamed officials, argues that China was ready to send weapons to Russia after the outbreak of the Ukrainian conflict, but refrained from this step after a call from US President Joe Biden. According to the material, Biden warned Chinese President Xi Jinping that the United States would respond to such supplies, which caused discontent in Beijing.

Sources say that during the conversation, Biden clearly stated that arms supplies to Russia would lead to retaliatory measures from the United States. Xi Jinping, according to the publication, expressed concern and asked whether the United States was threatening China in this way.

This information, if confirmed, indicates serious diplomatic efforts by Washington to prevent China from increasing military support for Russia. The PRC, in turn, previously announced that they do not plan to send weapons to Russia.
