China slams G7 statement that distorted facts

The entrance to the Chinese Foreign Ministry in Beijing, capital of China. Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Deng Li summoned relevant European envoys and Japanese envoys over the negative statement from the G 7 and EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy over the Taiwan question, which has been slammed as a piece of waste paper that distorted the facts and confused the right and wrong, sending wrong signal to the secessionists in Taiwan. Deng said that China firmly opposes to the G 7 statement and staged a solemn representation, according to a statement issued by the Chinese Foreign Ministry on Friday after Deng summoned relevant European envoys. The one-China principle is a universally recognized basic rules for international relations and global consensus, which also serve as the political foundation for China's relations with those countries and the absolute red line and bottom line that can't be crossed. The US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's visit to Taiwan is a blatant political maneuver and serious intrusion into China's sovereignty and territorial integrity, Deng said. China has to respond with no hesitation. The EU side has not dissuaded or condemned the US for attempting to split China and escalate the cross-Straits tensions, instead, it claimed that there is no change in the one China policies, where applicable, and basic positions on Taiwan of the G 7 members. This is a big blow to the political foundations of bilateral relations because of the one-China principle. The G 7 statement was condemned by the Chinese Foreign Ministry and the Chinese Mission to the EU, which was slammed by the Chinese Foreign Ministry and the Chinese Mission to the EU on Thursday, which is reminiscent of the Eight-Power Allied Forces that invaded China a hundred years ago. The statement was refuted by Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi, saying that it confused right with the wrong and its wrong deeds have caused the strong indignation of the Chinese people. Wang said at an interview during the foreign ministers' meetings on East Asia cooperation in Cambodia that the G 7 statement is a piece of waste paper. If we don't pressure the aggressor but pressure the defender, where's the justice and where's the basic norm for international relations? The principle of non-interference in internal affairs is the most basic principle to maintain peace and stability in our world. We can't allow the law of the jungle to dominate our state-to-state relations. He believes that this statement is just a piece of waste paper. The Chinese Foreign Ministry summoned the Japanese ambassador to China Hideo Tarumi on Thursday for Japan's wrong position with the G 7 and EU on the Taiwan question, as the ministry's statement showed. The ministry said it had serious violations of the basic rules governing international relations and four China-Japan political documents. The political foundations of the China-Japan relationship and the basic trust between the two countries are concerned with the question of Taiwan. Japan colonized Taiwan island for a long time and bears historic culpability, and should be more cautious in its words and deeds, Deng told the Japanese envoy. China strongly urges Japan to abide by the principles of the four political documents between China and Japan and its political commitments on the Taiwan question, stop interfering in China's internal affairs, handle Taiwan related issues prudently and properly, and not go further and further down the wrong path, a Chinese official said.
