Russia has taken note of an outbreak of anti-Chinese sentiment in the United States, which breeds problems in international relations, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said during an online discussion of Russia-US relations organized by the Gorchakov Public Diplomacy Support Fund on Friday.
“There has been further pressure on a number of governments which Washington does not like for this or that reason. We’ve noticed an upsurge in anti-Chinese sentiment. Not just sentiment, but specific action that breeds problems in international relations,” Ryabkov said.
He described this issue as a “serious one.”
“We are to pool efforts to gauge its effects in the forthcoming period,” Ryabkov stressed.
