Foreign Minister of China criticizes the United States as a "dangerous element" in the South China Sea issue 4:16, September 10
China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi attends the Foreign Ministers' Meeting of the East Asia Summit, which includes 18 member states of the ASEAN = Southeast Asian Nations and 18 countries including Japan and the United States, and strengthens their involvement in the South China Sea issue, where there is a dispute over sovereignty. He strongly criticized the United States, saying that it is becoming the most dangerous element that undermines peace in the South China Sea.
The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs has revealed what Mr. Wang Yi has said during this conference held in the form of a video conference.
As a result, Foreign Minister Wang named the United States, which has strengthened its involvement in the South China Sea issue, such as repeating large-scale military exercises to deploy two aircraft carriers, and said, "Interfering with the efforts of China and ASEAN countries to resolve conflicts through talks, It is becoming the most dangerous element that causes conflicts and undermines peace in the South China Sea."
In addition, “The South China Sea is not a stadium where nations compete for influence. Countries other than the nations competing for sovereignty, such as the United States, do not seek tension for their own interests, but hope and hope for each other. I fully respect you."
Foreign Minister Wang's remarks are likely to reiterate the previous claims that the South China Sea issue should be resolved between the parties, with the aim of eliminating US involvement.
Foreign Minister China argues against Hong Kong issue
The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs also said several countries, including the United States, criticized China for the Hong Kong issue at the Foreign Ministers' Meeting at the East Asia Summit.
In response, Foreign Minister Wang Yi said, "This conference was a forum for discussing strategic cooperation, and had never intervened in the internal affairs of other countries. The problem in Hong Kong is China's internal affairs, and non-interference in domestic affairs is a basic norm for international relations, and all nations are obliged to defend it."
