China Asserts Opposition to Unilateral Sanctions Amid Japan’s Trade Restrictions

China’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson, Lin Jian, reaffirmed China’s stance against unilateral sanctions not grounded in international law. This statement came in response to Japan’s imposition of trade restrictions on China-based firms as part of its latest sanctions targeting entities allegedly supporting Russia in its conflict with Ukraine.

Lin Jian emphasized China’s right to conduct normal economic and trade activities with Russia based on principles of equality and mutual benefit, highlighting Beijing’s ongoing defiance against international sanctions perceived as unjustified.
