reuters.com:  "The EU and China, we agreed that this war is threatening global security and the world's economy," Charles Michel told a news conference after a virtual EU-China summit.

China itself has concerns that European countries are taking harder-line foreign policy cues from the United States and has called for the EU to 'exclude external interference' from its relations with China.

"China should, if not support, at least not interfere with our sanctions," said President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, also addressing the conference.

Relations were already strained before the Ukraine war, which Moscow calls a "special operation". The EU abruptly switched in 2019 from soft diplomatic language to call China a systemic rival, but sees it as a potential partner in fighting climate change or the pandemic.
