China News Agency, Washington, August 10. Chinese Ambassador to the United States Qin Gang said in Washington on the 9th that the US House of Representatives Speaker Pelosi's insistence on visiting Taiwan seriously violated the US's commitment on the Taiwan issue and violated the spirit of the contract.
At the invitation of "Forbes" magazine, Qin Gang attended the 4th Forbes US-China Business Forum on the 9th and delivered a keynote speech.
He pointed out that Americans have a spirit of contract.
On the Taiwan issue, the position of the Chinese government and the demands of the Chinese people are very simple and clear, that is, its own territory cannot be divided, and the country must be unified.
The international instruments signed by the United States, including the 1943 Cairo Declaration and the 1945 Potsdam Proclamation, must be abided by, and the bilateral commitments made by the United States, including the three Sino-US joint communiques, must be implemented.
Qin Gang said that the Taiwan issue is the most important and sensitive core issue in Sino-US relations. If it is not handled properly, it will have a serious or even subversive impact on the cooperation between the two countries.
Just last week, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi insisted on visiting Taiwan despite strong opposition from China and voices of doubt and criticism in the United States.
This blatantly violates the promise made by the US to China to "not develop official relations with Taiwan", and is an extremely irresponsible, provocative and dangerous act.
This move seriously violated the one-China principle and the three Sino-US joint communiqués, severely impacted the political foundation of Sino-US relations, seriously violated China's sovereignty and territorial integrity, and seriously undermined the peace and stability of the Taiwan Strait.
Of course, China takes all necessary and legitimate countermeasures and countermeasures to defend its core interests.
Otherwise, the norms of international relations that respect sovereignty and territorial integrity will become a dead letter, and the international order will fall into chaos and turmoil.
When talking about economic and trade issues, Qin Gang emphasized that at present, Sino-US economic and trade relations are facing severe challenges and full of uncertainty.
The first challenge is whether Sino-US relations can remain stable.
Today Sino-US relations are at a crossroads.
Defining Sino-US relations with strategic competition and regarding China as the main rival and the most serious long-term challenge, such misreading and misjudgment will obviously only exacerbate tensions, mislead Sino-US relations into a track of confrontation and conflict, and make China U.S. economic and trade relations are under constant pressure.
Qin Gang pointed out that the normal economic and trade cooperation between China and the United States has been politicized and pan-secured. The United States continues to impose 301 tariffs on China. More than 1,000 Chinese companies and individuals have been included in various sanctions and control lists, and Chinese companies' investment in the United States has been banned. Strict scrutiny and the prohibition of US companies from investing in China in "critical industries" have gone far beyond the scope of normal and fair competition.
Today in the 21st century, it is unrealistic and impossible to return the world to the old road of isolation and to destabilize the global industrial chain and supply chain.
Sino-US economic and trade relations should be driven by common interests, not fear.
