China News Service, Beijing, August 10 (Reporter Xing Chong Guo Chaokai) Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin hosted a regular press conference on August 10.
A reporter asked: According to reports, the Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi said in an interview that she did not understand why her visit to Taiwan a few months ago had no impact, but her visit aroused great concern from the Chinese side.
The US should not allow China to isolate Taiwan.
What is China's comment?
Wang Wenbin: We have always opposed US congressmen visiting Taiwan.
Pelosi is the No. 3 U.S. political figure. She flew to Taiwan on a U.S. military plane. During her visit to Taiwan, she represented the U.S., claiming that it was an official visit. breakthrough.
All of these fully demonstrate that Pelosi's visit to Taiwan is a major political provocation to escalate US-Taiwan relations. It goes against the promise of the United States to "maintain unofficial relations with Taiwan" in the "Communiqué on the Establishment of Diplomatic Relations between China and the United States", and goes against the wide recognition of the international community. The one-China principle confirmed by the UN General Assembly Resolution 2758 violates the international law of non-interference in internal affairs established by the UN Charter.
More than four months ago, the Chinese side has repeatedly stated to the US side its solemn stance against Pelosi's move to Taiwan through various channels and at all levels.
It is the United States that has broken its promise, not China. It is the United States that has violated China's sovereignty, not China. It is the United States that condones and supports "Taiwan independence" separatist activities, not China.
Provocation by the US comes first, while China's legitimate countermeasures follow, which is reasonable, legal, necessary and appropriate.
The U.S. side has gone further and further down the road of virtualizing, hollowing out and distorting the one-China principle, but accuses China of changing the status quo.
The US conducts hundreds of military exercises in the waters surrounding China every year, but accuses China of overreacting.
For this kind of robber logic, China will not accept it, nor will the international community recognize it.
Regarding the serious provocative actions of the US that violated China's sovereignty and interfered in China's internal affairs, as long as the US does it once, China will fight resolutely once, and will never allow China's sovereignty and territorial integrity to be trampled on and undermined.
If the US really wants to abide by international law and safeguard the sovereignty and territorial integrity of all countries as it says, it should honestly return to the one-China principle and the three Sino-US joint communiqués, and don’t act rashly or go all the way to the dark side. Get rid of the idea of "using Taiwan to control China" as soon as possible, and do more real things for the stable development of Sino-US relations and the peace and stability of the Taiwan Strait.
