China, Russia warn US of consequences over sanctions

US hits China with sanctions for buying Russian fighter jets and missiles

The sanctions will deny EDD any foreign export licences, prohibit it from making foreign exchange transactions within United States jurisdiction or using the U.S. financial system, and block its property and interests within USA control, the Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post reported.

An "outraged" China on Friday lodged a diplomatic protest with the USA for imposing punitive sanctions on its military unit for buying Russian weapons, warning of "consequences" if the sanctions are not revoked.

A senior United States administration official, speaking on condition of anonymity, insisted the ultimate target was Russian Federation.

Being added to the blacklist does not immediately trigger sanctions, but anyone dealing with a blacklisted person or entity could be liable to punitive measures under the Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (Caatsa) passed by Congress in 2017.

That partnership was strengthened after US President Donald Trump listed both China and Russian Federation as American military rivals earlier this year, Shanghai-based satellite expert He Qisong said, adding that the partnership was growing on various fronts. US President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Thursday authorising the sanctions to be implemented. China's foreign ministry demanded the US cancel the measure, as Moscow also lambasted the sanctions and warned that the Trump administration was "playing with fire".

A federal special counsel led by former FBI head Robert Mueller is leading a criminal investigation of Russian interference in the USA election, and any possible co-operation with Trump's presidential campaign. "They are instead aimed at imposing costs on Russian Federation in response to its malign activities, and of course those malign activities are many", the official said.

"China bought 24 Su-35s because the People's Liberation Army needs long-range fighter jets to deploy in the South China Sea", Zhou said.

"I am sure that these contracts will be executed in line with the schedule", Franz Klintsevich, a Russian member of parliament, was quoted as saying by Russia's Interfax news agency.

The sanctions target China's Equipment Development Department (EDD) and its director, Li Shangfu, and have increased tensions between Washington and Beijing amid an escalating trade dispute.

Butler made his move-now it’s Wolves’ turn
Butler likes the Clippers' odds of signing a second superstar during the 2019 offseason as they have two max contract slots. In Minnesota, he had issues with Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns and just seems to be a negative influence on guys.

Security analysts in Asia said the move was largely symbolic and would only push Moscow and Beijing closer together.

Beijing-based military analyst Zhou Chenming said China still needed Russia's help to modernise its armed forces.

The anti-Russian sanctions targeting China and other countries undermined global stability, Moscow said, according to AFP.

"What the U.S. has done gravely violated the basis norms governing the global relations and harmed the state-to-state and military-to-military relations between the two sides", he said.

"China is strongly outraged by this unreasonable action by the U.S.", Geng told reporters at a daily news briefing.

The senior official stressed that CAATSA is not going to be implemented across the board, but that the U.S. was choosing Russia's sale of "bigger ticket items" of "new, fancy, qualitatively significant stuff" that could have a "security impact" on the United States.

Members of Congress, including many of Trump's fellow Republicans, who passed the sanctions bill almost unanimously, have repeatedly called on the administration to take a harder line against Moscow.

Washington has expressed concern that Turkey's planned deployment of the S-400s could pose a risk to the security of some US -made weapons and other technology used by Turkey, including the F-35 fighter jet.
