PHOTO XINHUA DHAKA - Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Sunday during his visit to Bangladesh that the United States is mistaken in three aspects of a reckless tour to China's Taiwan region by Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi.
Firstly, Wang said that the US side grossly interfered in China's internal affairs, despite China's repeated notifications and warnings, the United States went on its own way, and arranged for the third-ranking US government official to visit China's Taiwan region.
The US side said that the US side's action is a serious infringement on China's sovereignty and that it must be understood that Taiwan is not a part of the United States, but part of Chinese territory.
He said that the United States supported and supported the Taiwan independence forces and that any country must safeguard national unity and never allow separatist elements to behave recklessly.
In recent years, Wang said that the Democratic Progressive Party in the Taiwan region has included the pursuit of independence in its party platform, and it has tried every possible means to seek incremental Taiwan independence and create two Chinas or one China, one Taiwan. The speaker of the US House of Representatives supported it up, siding with the separatist forces against the Chinese people.
It deliberately sabotaged peace across the Taiwan Straits. The United States, as known to all, always creates a problem first and then uses it to achieve its strategic end, Wang said.
He noted that there are signs that the United States is trying to repeat its old tricks by orchestrating Pelosi's reckless tour to Taiwan.
Washington is taking the opportunity to increase its military deployment in the region, which deserves high vigilance and resolute boycott from all sides, Wang warned.
He said that China's firm stance and its justified, reasonable, necessary, open and proportionate countermeasures are intended to protect China's sacred sovereignty and territorial integrity, preventing the US attempt to contain China, crushing the Taiwan government's illusion of US support for their independence agenda, and earnestly safeguarding peace across the Taiwan Straits and regional stability.
Wang said that the principle of non-interference in each other's internal affairs is the golden rule for the development of state-to- state relations and the magic tool for developing countries to protect their sovereignty and security.
As unilateral bullying happens from time to time, the international community should reach an even clearer consensus and make an even louder voice in order to uphold the basic norms governing international relations and international law, and safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of all developing countries, as well as the understanding of and support for China's position by various countries, said Wang.
