China has consistently refused to condemn Russia’s actions and has instead given unwavering economic and trade support, despite global condemnation.

China’s Xi assured Putin that he will “work with Russia to extend strong mutual support on each other’s core interests.”

He thanked Putin for his respect of the one-China policy, stressing Taiwan is a part of China.

At the White House, Pentagon Press Sec, John Kirby shrugged off any concerns about the meeting.

And instead, sent a firm message to China.

“Our message to China, I think, been consistent: that this is not the time for any kind of business as usual with Mr. Putin, given what he’s done inside Ukraine. This is not the time to be isolated from the rest of the international community, which has largely condemned what he’s doing in Ukraine and not only condemned it, but stepped up to help the Ukrainians defend themselves and their territorial integrity,”
