“The situation in the Taiwan Strait is still turbulent, and we will be vigilant that the United States may seize the opportunity by planning to increase its military presence and try to aggravate the crisis,” Wang Yi said, his words are quoted on the website of the Chinese Foreign Ministry.

He noted that the Chinese authorities should be vigilant against supporters of Taiwan independence.

Earlier, Chinese Defense Ministry spokesman Wu Qian said that the PRC urges the United States to respect Beijing's vital interests and give up illusions about using Taiwan to control China.

The Kremlin noted that tensions after the visit of the speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan will not subside quickly.

Chinese Ambassador to Russia Zhang Hanhui urged the United States to confirm in practice that it respects the principle of one China and does not support the independence of Taiwan.
