    China considers unacceptable US attempts to prevent gas supplies from Russia to Europe, as well as the desire to monopolize the energy market of the European Union. This was announced by the official representative of the Chinese Foreign Ministry Zhao Lijian, reports TASS.

    The diplomat called the launch of the Russian Nord Stream-2 project mutually beneficial for the EU. In his opinion, gas supplies via the pipeline will help to resolve the difficult energy situation in the European Union.

    Lijian pointed out that the United States is trying to use “all possible ways” to prevent the implementation of the project, acting against the interests of Russia and the EU. “The United States is guided solely by its own interests and is trying to politicize all relevant issues,” the Foreign Ministry spokesman said.

    The diplomat accused Washington of pursuing its own geopolitical interests and noted that for their sake “the United States can attack even its allies and partners.”

    Earlier, Assistant to the US President for National Security Jake Sullivan called on Russia to increase gas supplies to Europe. At the same time, he stressed that the Russian government would make a mistake if it used gas as a political weapon. “I think that Russia should respond to the needs of the market in increasing gas supplies to Europe,” he concluded.

    Tensions between Washington and Beijing have intensified in recent months amid competition in the Pacific region. The Chinese authorities say that most of the international waters in the region belong to the PRC. We are talking about disputed waters in the areas of Taiwan, the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia and others. The Chinese Government is taking measures to strengthen control over the sea lanes through which world trade passes.
