US President Joe Biden said on Friday that China has yet to deliver weapons to Russia after Russian troops invaded Ukraine on a full scale last year.

“For the last three months, I’ve heard that China is going to deliver important weapons to Russia (…) They haven’t yet. That doesn’t mean they won’t, but they haven’t.” I haven’t done it yet,” Biden said at a press conference during his visit to Canada.

“I don’t underestimate China. I don’t underestimate Russia,” Biden said. He also suggested that news of rapprochement between China and Russia may be “exaggerated”.

Biden also emphasized the strong ties between Western democracies and said, “It is the West becoming much more united.”

He pointed to US security alliances in the Pacific region, including QUAD, which includes Australia, India and Japan, and AUKUS, the US alliance with Australia and the UK.

Russia and China stressed the “special nature” of their relationship during Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to Moscow this week.

Although the Chinese leader promised Moscow continued commercial and moral support, he did not commit to provide weapons to Russian troops in Ukraine, which could result in the West imposing sanctions on China.

Nor is China committed to long-term purchases of large volumes of Russian gas no longer transported to Europe.
