LONDON – British foreign minister Liz Truss told her Chinese counterpart she expected Beijing to stand up for Ukraine’s sovereignty, Truss said in a statement issued on Friday.

“I spoke to (Chinese) FM (Foreign Minister) Wang Yi about Russia’s unprovoked invasion of Ukraine and made clear that Russia’s actions are a flagrant breach of the UN Charter,” Truss said in a statement following the call.

“As a permanent member of the UN Security Council we expect China to stand up for Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.”
