The European Union has seen “no evidence so far” that would suggest China was considering supplying weapons to Russia for the war in Ukraine, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said on March 5. On the subject of sanctions against China in the event of such deliveries, von der Leyen added that this was “a hypothetical question that can only be answered if it becomes reality and fact.” Von der Leyen spoke alongside German Chancellor Olaf Scholz in eastern Germany. “We all agree that there must be no arms deliveries,” Scholz said.
