‘Immediately correct mistake’: China warns after USA imposes sanctions

China urges US to withdraw sanctions or face'consequences

In particular, this refers to Executive Order 13660 of March 6, 2014 (imposition of sanctions for the actions of the Russian Federation in Crimea, "that undermine democratic processes and institutions in Ukraine; threaten its peace, security, stability, sovereignty, and territorial integrity; and contribute to the misappropriation of its assets), as well as further orders that extended the range of application of the first package of Crimean sanctions". Geng called the sanctions 'unreasonable, ' saying the transactions with Russian Federation didn't break any worldwide laws.

An "outraged" China on Friday lodged a diplomatic protest with the U.S. for imposing punitive sanctions on its military unit for buying Russian weapons, warning of "consequences" if the sanctions are not revoked.

The US action violated the basic principles of global relations, the ministry of foreign affairs (MFA), Geng Shuang said.

A federal special counsel is leading a criminal investigation of Russian interference in the US election, and any possible cooperation with Trump's presidential campaign. "It's meant to impose appropriate pressures on Russia in response to Russian malign acts", the official said.

In a Thursday statement, the US State Department said that the sanctions had been invoked under Section 231 of Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act of 2017 (CAATSA) "for engaging in significant transactions with persons on the [List of Specified Persons]".

The EDD and Mr Li have been added to a Blocked Persons List, meaning any assets they hold in the United States are frozen and Americans are "generally prohibited" from doing business with them.

Moscow denies any effort to meddle in USA politics, although Vladimir Putin admitted at a summit this summer with Trump that he wanted the Republican to prevail in the 2016 election over Hillary Clinton.

"I am sure that these contracts will be executed in line with the schedule", Franz Klintsevich, a Russian member of parliament, was quoted as saying by Russia's Interfax news agency.

Australian Woman Critical After Being Attacked By A Shark While Swimming
In a series of tweets, RACQ Rescue confirmed it had sent the rescue helicopter to Cid Harbour to retrieve the victim. Shockingly, less than 24 hours later, a 12-year-old girl was attacked in a similar area.

China has become less of an arms client and more of a cutting-edge defence technology partner with Russian Federation since it started developing more of its own weapons, military observers say.

The Russians named for CAATSA blacklisting have all been named previously under other USA sanctions regimes.

Collin Koh, a security analyst at Singapore's S Rajaratnam School of International Studies, said the sanctions would do little to counter the evolving research and development relationship between China and Russian Federation. China, which relies on technology for its military modernisation has stepped up its military ties with Russian Federation.

Who is affected by the sanctions?

Earlier on Friday, Russia also lashed out over the new sanctions, warning the US was "playing with fire".

Similar action against other countries would be considered, Washington added.

Turkey is in talks regarding the purchase of S-400 missiles from Russian Federation and India has also expressed interest in purchasing S-400s, moves which the United States opposes. It can target stealth warplanes, such as the Pentagon's latest F-35 fighter jet.

"We hope that at least this step will send a signal of our seriousness and perhaps encourage others to think twice about their own engagement with the Russian defense and intelligence sectors", another USA official said.
