China News Service, Beijing, January 13 (Reporter Liang Xiaohui) Regarding the US government's declassification of a US "Indo-Pacific strategy" document 30 years in advance, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian pointed out at a regular press conference on the 13th that the "three major issues" Error", and said that it should be swept into the garbage dump of history.
A reporter asked a question. According to reports, the US government declassified a US "Indo-Pacific Strategy" document 30 years in advance, including defending Taiwan, helping India to rise to counterbalance China, and maintaining the dominant position in the US region. What's China's comment on this?
"Some U.S. politicians attempted to leave a so-called'legacy' by declassifying relevant documents, but the content just exposed the sinister intentions of the United States to use the'Indo-Pacific strategy' to contain and suppress China and undermine regional peace and stability. It is essentially a'hegemony strategy'. '." Zhao Lijian pointed out that this document made at least three major mistakes.
First, the Cold War mentality is prominent and the military confrontation is strong. It violates the spirit of mutual benefit and win-win in regional cooperation. It does not conform to the popular aspirations of regional countries to seek peace, stability, and development. It seriously threatens the prospects of regional peace and development. Sweep into the garbage dump of history.
Zhao Lijian pointed out that the United States is keen to form cliques, engage in "small circles," and use disgraceful tactics such as instigating divisiveness, which fully exposed the true colors of the United States as a disruptor of regional peace and stability, a disruptor of unity and cooperation, and a troublemaker.
"I believe the countries in the region are fully aware and vigilant about this, and will not be tied to a chariot by the United States and become a tool for the United States to maintain its hegemony."
Second, it seriously violated the serious commitment the US government made to China on the Taiwan issue.
Zhao Lijian emphasized that there is only one China in the world and Taiwan is an inalienable part of Chinese territory.
China has the determination, confidence, and ability to defeat any form of external interference and separatist attempts to "Taiwan independence", and resolutely defend national sovereignty and territorial integrity.
"Any U.S. attempt to control China with Taiwan is futile." Zhao Lijian said, urging the U.S. to fully recognize the high sensitivity of the Taiwan issue, strictly abide by the one-China principle and the provisions of the three Sino-U.S. joint communiqués, and handle the Taiwan issue carefully and properly. Send the wrong signal to the "Taiwan independence" forces and do not go further and further down the wrong and dangerous path, lest it seriously damage the peace and stability of the Taiwan Strait and Sino-US relations.
Third, maliciously distorting China's peripheral policies and exaggerating the "China threat".
Zhao Lijian said that a lie is a lie after all, and justice is in the hearts of the people.
China unswervingly follows the path of peaceful development and pursues a defensive national defense policy. It is a builder of world peace, a contributor to global development, and a defender of international order.
As a responsible member of the Asia-Pacific region, China has actively practiced the diplomatic concept of closeness, sincerity and inclusiveness, and made important contributions to regional peace, stability and prosperity.
This is obvious to all regional countries.
Zhao Lijian emphasized that the Asia-Pacific region is the region where the interests of China and the United States are most intertwined and interact most frequently.
The United States should abandon the Cold War zero-sum mentality, earnestly respect China’s core interests and major concerns, strengthen communication and dialogue with China, properly manage differences, and promote the Asia-Pacific region to become a “big stage” for mutually beneficial cooperation between China and the United States, rather than a “competition” of zero-sum games among major powers. field".
