US ambassador to Germany Amy Gutmann slams China over Ukraine stance
The new US ambassador to Germany on Monday accused China of taking President Vladimir Putin's side in the Ukraine conflict as Beijing refuses to condemn Russia over the crisis.
"President Xi (Jinping) says he's being neutral in this conflict. There is no neutrality in this conflict," said Amy Gutmann, who was confirmed as the US ambassador under President Joe Biden last month after tumultuous years with Donald Trump's envoy.
Gutmann, 72, the daughter of a Holocaust survivor, has been confirmed as the new ambassador to Germany by the US Senate but has not yet been sworn in.
