China, Russia warn United States of consequences over sanctions

US Hits China With Sanctions For Buying Russian Jets Missiles

Officials said it was the first time a third country has been punished under the CAATSA sanctions legislation for dealing with Russian Federation, and signaled the Trump administration's will to risk relations with other countries in its campaign against Moscow.

The new sanctions unveiled by the state department on Thursday will sharpen tensions with Beijing amid a brewing trade war - and further sour relations with Moscow.

Asked whether China would continue its close intelligence and defence cooperation with Russia, Geng said, "China and Russia are comprehensive strategic partners of coordination".

Reacting to the U.S. move, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said, "China is strongly outraged by this unreasonable action of the USA and lodged stern representations".

"We strongly urge the USA side to correct the mistakes immediately and revoke the so-called sanctions. Playing with fire is stupid and can become unsafe".

The administration also blacklisted an additional 33 people and entities associated with the Russian military and intelligence, adding them to a list under the 2017 law, known as the Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act, or CAATSA.

They also include 25 Russians and three Russian companies who were indicted over the past year by Russia collusion investigator Robert Mueller for their involvement in political meddling and hacking during the 2016 election.

"The US has seriously violated the basic norms of worldwide relations and disturbed the relationship between China and the US".

The official declined to answer if the USA would take similar action if Russian Federation delivers S400 missiles to other countries such as Turkey, which is in talks to buy them.

Ryabkov reiterated that none of the rounds of sanctions had managed to force Russian Federation to change its course so far.

For all of Russia's seemingly upbeat rhetoric the new measures can hurt the country's struggling economy.

China's purchase of the weapons from Rosoboronexport, Russia's main arms exporter, violated a 2017 law, the Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA), meant to punish the government of President Vladimir Putin for interfering in US elections and other activities.

"The ultimate target of these sanctions is Russian Federation", a senior United States administration official told journalists, insisting on anonymity.

China's EDD and its director Li Shangfu became targets after taking delivery over the past year of the jets and missiles from Rosoboronexport, Russia's main arms exporter already on the USA blacklist for its support of Bashar al-Assad's regime in Syria.

"As to other potential recipients of the S-400, we haven't made any determinations yet with respect to what to do about those, but you can be confident that we have spent an enormous amount of time talking about prospective purchases of things such as S-400s and Sukhois with people all around the world who may have been interested in such things and some who may still be", the official said.

The two countries will launch new tariffs on Monday, with Washington targeting $200 billion in Chinese exports and Beijing hitting $60 billion worth of American products.
