China Backs Russia After Putin Warns West They'll Regret Crossing 'Red Line' [View all]

Amid growing tensions between the United States and Russia, China threw its support behind Russian President Vladimir Putin, calling the two nations "comprehensive strategic partners of coordination in the new era."

In a recent state of the union address, Putin reminded Western leaders of the country's nuclear arsenal and warned the West not to cross a "red line." Any country that provoked threats to Russia's fundamental security would "regret their deeds more than they have regretted anything in a long time," according to Putin.

When asked about Putin's comment, foreign ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said China and Russia will "continue to understand and support each other in safeguarding our respective sovereignty, security and development interests."

Putin hasn't ruled out a Russia-China military alliance. In October, he said it was "quite possible to imagine it" and pointed to the war games the two countries' armed forces participated in and Russia's sharing of sensitive military technologies with China.


Autocrats of a feather.
