China News Agency, Washington, August 5th. The spokesperson of the Chinese embassy in the United States said in response to an inquiry on the 5th that Qin Gang, the Chinese ambassador to the United States, solemnly rejected the US side's response to China's series of military countermeasures when he met with officials of the National Security Council of the White House on the 4th. Unreasonable accusations.
During the meeting, Qin Gang pointed out that the US side insisted on arranging House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's visit to Taiwan in disregard of China's repeated and solemn warnings in advance, which seriously undermined the peace and stability of the Taiwan Strait and Sino-US relations.
The responsibility for the current situation lies entirely with the United States. More than 160 countries and international organizations, including ASEAN and other regional countries, have criticized Pelosi's visit to Taiwan and reiterated their adherence to the one-China principle.
The U.S. falsely accuses China of escalating tensions.
Facts have proved that the US is the troublemaker for peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait and the region.
Qin Gang emphasized that the Chinese military's series of military countermeasures in the waters near Taiwan Island are necessary and legitimate measures to deter the "Taiwan independence" separatist forces and safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity.
Chinese people must believe what they say and do what they do.
Qin Gang said that the United States should earnestly abide by its commitment to adhere to the one-China policy and not support "Taiwan independence", and take immediate measures to correct its mistakes and eliminate the bad influence of Pelosi's visit to Taiwan, instead of taking escalating actions that further aggravate the situation in the Taiwan Strait and the tension between China and the United States. .
On August 5, the Chinese embassy in the United States held a media briefing by video. Chinese Minister Jing Quan introduced China's solemn position on Pelosi's visit to Taiwan and refuted the unreasonable accusations made by the United States against China.
In his briefing, Jing Quan emphasized three points: First, the US has seriously violated its political commitments to China.
Second, the US is the first to provoke China and create tension, and China's countermeasures are justifiable and necessary.
Third, the US must properly handle the Taiwan issue in a prudent and proper manner.
Jing Quan pointed out that the comprehensive measures taken by China at present and in the future are legitimate, necessary and timely defensive countermeasures. After careful consideration and careful evaluation, they aim to safeguard national sovereignty and security, comply with international and domestic laws, and are against provocateurs. The warning is also the maintenance of regional stability and peace across the Taiwan Strait.
Some people say that China is overreacting and is taking the opportunity to create a crisis and escalate tensions. This is a complete misunderstanding.
It is obvious that the US and Taiwan colluded and provoked first, and China took countermeasures. It cannot be said that you are only allowed to provoke and cause trouble, and others are not allowed to defend themselves.
There is no such truth in the world, not to mention that China has issued warnings many times before.
The responsibility for the current situation lies entirely with China.
