I Prayed have prayed
Lord, we ask that you would prevent and undo any ungodly alliance between China and Russia. Do not let them work against your purposes in the earth, and give our leaders wisdom and courage to act rightly in this crisis.

China and Russia have formed a bond that could be a major strategic threat to the U.S. How China responds to the invasion of Ukraine and how we either push the two nations closer together or further apart will have major implications down the road.

From CNBC. China’s foreign minister, Wang Yi, says Beijing wants to avoid being impacted by U.S. sanctions over Russia’s war with Ukraine..

“China is not a party to the crisis, nor does it want the sanctions to affect China,” Wang said Monday during a call with Spanish counterpart Jose Manuel Albares to discuss the crisis in Ukraine.

“China has the right to safeguard its legitimate rights and interests….”

Since Russia’s attack on Ukraine, Beijing has refused to call it an invasion and said China would maintain normal trade with both countries. China has not joined the U.S., EU and other countries’ sanctions on Russia.

China has said, however, that it is “deeply” worried about the crisis in Ukraine.

‘Intense’ talks

Officials from the U.S. and China met on Monday to discuss a range of bilateral issues, including Russia’s war with Ukraine. The talks, which were held in Rome, spanned seven hours and were described as “intense” by one senior administration official.

The U.S. has warned of consequences for any country that provides Russia with support amid the Kremlin’s conflict with Ukraine….

Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said Sunday that the Kremlin was counting on China to help it withstand the fallout from global economic measures imposed against Moscow,  Reuters reported….

“China always opposes the use of sanctions to solve problems, and even more opposes unilateral sanctions that have no basis in international law, which will undermine international rules and bring harm to the people’s livelihood of all countries,” Wang said.
