China firmly opposes unilateral sanctions that have no basis in international law, a spokesperson for the Chinese Foreign Ministry said on Friday.

Earlier, Japan imposed trade restrictions on China-based companies as part of a fresh round of sanctions against individuals and groups regarded as supporting Russia's war on Ukraine, its Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

"It is China's legitimate right to engage in normal economic and trade cooperation with Russia on the basis of equality and mutual benefit," said Lin Jian when addressing a query at a regular press briefing.
