Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi met with Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in Singapore on the 11th and stated, "The United States is the world's largest destabilizing factor," and reined in the United States' move that could be described as a network of encirclement of China.
Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi is visiting Southeast Asia for four days from October 10, and on November 4, he held talks with Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in Singapore.
According to China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Foreign Minister Wang strongly criticized the United States, saying, "It tolerates the forces of 'Taiwan independence,' has reached a red line that China must not cross, and is forcing other countries to unilaterally protect China."
He then said, "Going against the times only undermines one's credibility and proves that the United States has become the greatest destabilizing factor in the world today."
While the United States is strengthening its involvement in Taiwan and tightening export restrictions on advanced semiconductors and other products to China, China has moved forward with a movement that can be described as a network of encirclement of China.
In response, Prime Minister Lee expressed his intention to promote cooperation with China and responded, "The world today is by no means peaceful, and I hope that major powers will play a leading role and pursue win-win results."
