On Thursday, Chinese Vice-Foreign Minister Deng Li was ordered to summone the Japanese ambassador to China Tarumi Hideo to make solemn representations over the negative Taiwan-related statement issued by the G 7 foreign ministers and the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy.

Wang believes that the return to motherland of Taiwan is a historical inevitability.

Deng noted that Japan joined other members of G 7 and the EU in issuing a statement that confounds black and white and attempts to justify the US connivance at the Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi's visit to China's Taiwan region, infringement of China's sovereignty and serious violations of the principles of the four political documents between China and Japan, and sent a seriously wrong signal to the international community.

Deng said that China strongly opposes and strongly condemns this.

Deng said that the Taiwan question is about the political foundation of China-Japanese relations and the basic trust between the two countries, despite China's position on the Taiwan question.

Deng said that Japan should be more cautious in its words and deeds because Japan had colonized Taiwan for a long time and thus bears serious historic culpability.

China strongly urges the Japanese side 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, and refrain from going further down the wrong path, Deng said.

On Thursday, Chinese Vice-Foreign Minister Xie Feng summoned Canadian diplomat Jim Nickel and urged Canada to correct its mistakes on the issue of Taiwan or bear all consequences, according to the Chinese foreign ministry statement released on Friday.
