On the subject of Taiwan, Russia backs Beijing’s “One China” policy, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Friday, after Chinese President Xi Jinping urged US President Joe Biden not to play with fire over the island.

“Our position on the existence of only one China remains unchanged,” Lavrov told journalists in Tashkent. “We have no problem with upholding the principle of China’s sovereignty.”

Beijing has made growing warnings about the consequences of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visiting Taiwan, which claims to be under increasing Chinese military and economic pressure.
