China opposes EU sanctions on Chinese companies over Russia


China's Commerce Ministry on Monday expressed strong opposition against the EU listing four Chinese firms on the bloc's 13th sanctions package against Russia, calling the unilateral sanctions and "long-arm jurisdiction" having no basis in international law and no mandate from the UN Security Council.

"This act runs counter to the spirit of the consensus reached at the China-EU summit and will have a negative impact on China-EU economic and trade relations," the Chinese ministry added.

It urged the EU to bear in mind the overall interests of China-EU comprehensive strategic partnership and vowed to resolutely safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese enterprises.
