6:12 am
china appears to be open to providing military assistance to russia. we continue to call on all nations, especially those with direct influence, with russia to use whatever leverage they have to compel moscow to end this war of choice. we believe china, in particular, has a responsibility to use its influence, the president putin, and to defend the international rules and principles that it professes to support. instead, it appears that china is moving in the opposite direction by refusing to condemn this aggression while seeking to portray itself as a neutral arbiter. and we're concerned that they're considering directly assisting russia with military equipment using ukraine. well katrina, you joins us live now from beijing. katrina said this was the 1st time that biden and she had spoken for some time how important all these tools or simply that this phone call could determine the trajectory of the crisis in ukraine with these tools to speaking biden leading the charge to pressure russia to stopping the invasion,
6:13 am
and she didn't pig seen as one of the few international leaders left who does have influence with prison gotten imputed. now, china, as we've just had since the beginning of the russian attacks has refused to take aside, it's simply said that it encourages dialogue. but at the same time, aging has made it very clear that it intends to preserve its friendship with bratia, which it's described as rock solid. we had them the putin visit china and speak with president. she's in pain in person just a few weeks before the invasion. on the 2nd day of the attacks, they had a phone call. we that china's foreign ministry of the past few days, spread these questions about us run by our lads in ukraine, which many considered to be russian called the gander and moist crucially, we had aging continue to do business as usual with moscow of something that many believe could be sending out a crucial lifeline or crutch full russia at a time when many other countries are trying to economically isolate this. now
6:14 am
isolated now would you s has wound up aging that there will be consequences, for example, for evading west in sanctions, or even taking things a step further and supporting russia via military aid or witness. beijing has denied that it has any intention of doing this. ah, but at the same time, and china is also thinking about its own interest here, its own interest when it comes to doing trade with russia, its own interest when it comes to wanting stability in a very important political year thought precedent. she didn't pay. so definitely on the table during this for her will be a will actions potentially china could take going forward as well as other discussions around trade and in taiwan and katrina with russia invading ukraine. there are growing concerns as to where the beijing would eventually move the take of a tie up definitely in beijing has
6:15 am
a time and time again that these situations all not linked. but of course, taiwan is a self ruled island that beijing considered to be robbed. chinese territory and it said time and time again that it will one day be reunited with the chinese mainland and she didn't ping has said that china will not hesitate if needed to use force in order to attain this goal. will tyna has seen how the international community has reacted to the russian invasion of ukraine, and that's something that aging definitely does not want. does not want to be isolated. it cannot afford to be left out of the national financial system. so china has settle, so that will and it prefers to be unified again in taiwan by peaceful means. and of course, that requires some buy in from the taiwanese people in the taiwanese government. so it sees any moves to support taiwan independence or even encourage a sense of separate tie, one identity and separate from the mainland as frustrating this vision. so china's
6:16 am
complaint to the u. s. has been while you say you support one china, but at the same time you continue to st. delegations, you consider and continue to send military aid. so that has been speculation that beijing a, during this phone call, we use that as a some sort of bargaining chip look in. you want us to be on your so when it comes to russia, this is what we potentially need when it comes to taiwan. all right, katrina, you live for stay in beijing between up thank or a tougher. so break here now to 0, when we come back facing decades behind bars, for protesting more than a $102.00 government demonstrated on jail in cuba and senators in argentina, through the controversial refinancing bill as people taking the streets more than say, ah hello,
