Sanctions on China: US envoy summoned

The Heat: U.S. sanctions China military Pt1

'Outrage' after China ensnared in America's Russia sanctions

China summoned the United States ambassador on Saturday after the U.S. imposed sanctions on a branch of its military, according to Chinese state media.

Thursday's sanctions came after the Beijing military department purchased Su-35 combat aircraft and a S-400 surface-to-air missile system from Russian Federation.

U.S. sanctions aimed to squeeze "main competitor" out of arms market - Moscow The new punitive measures the U.S. imposed on buyers of Russian weapons - China in particular - is just a sign of unfair competition, aiming to get rid of "hyper-competitive" Russian-made arms, the Kremlin says.

A USA official, quoted in the report, said that the ultimate target of these sanctions was Russian Federation.

Asked if China could take corresponding measures against USA media groups, Geng said it had always supported foreign reporters and expected them to respect the law and report in a fair and objective manner.

The Kremlin has dismissed the latest round of USA sanctions that affected an aircraft-making factory as an "unfair" move to undercut Russian Federation as a major arms exporter.

A senior U.S. State Department official on Saturday said China was the only country that had taken possession of the advanced S-400 surface-to-air missile system, in a breach of a U.S. sanctions law imposed in response to Russia's "malign behaviour".

The Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act was passed as a way to punish Russian Federation for meddling in the 2016 US elections. India - a long-time buyer of Soviet defense equipment and a market Western arms firms are seeking to dominate - has also refused to drop its S-400 deal despite hints that it could result in sanctions.

Beijing warned of "further consequences" if the sanctions were not revoked.

China has told the Trump administration to remove punitive sanctions against its military, or "bear the consequences". "The US approach is a blatant violation of the basic norms of global relations", Wu said in a notice posted on the ministry's official Wechat account.
