China will not give permission – Danilov on the deployment of Russian nuclear weapons in Belarus
Russia can deploy nuclear weapons in Belarus only if China gives Putin the appropriate permission. However, Beijing is unlikely to approve such a proposal.
This was stated by Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Alexei Danilov.
Nuclear weapons on the territory of Belarus neither China nor Russia needs it.
“I can say that there will not be and cannot be any deployment of nuclear weapons on the territory of Belarus until China gives permission to Putin to place nuclear weapons there. Will China give permission to Putin to place nuclear weapons on the territory of Belarus? I am more than sure “. that is not,” said Danilov.
According to Danilov, neither China nor Russia needs nuclear weapons on the territory of Belarus, and Putin’s statements are just blackmail so that the Americans agree as soon as possible to go to some kind of negotiations, to negotiate in order to stop this war on Russia's terms.
Danilov noted that the Russians no longer want a further escalation of the conflict, but want to end it as soon as possible.
“There is no need to invent anything here, there is no conspiracy theory here. This is such a stupid game of Russia, which is always in order to force the Americans, the Anglo-Saxons to negotiate with the Russians precisely on our case,” Danilov added.
