Wang Yi: China's military exercise aims to punish "Taiwan independence" forces
2022-08-06: [Article Link] According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website, on the afternoon of 5 August local time, the State Councillor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi, after attending the series of Foreign Ministers for East Asia Cooperation in Phnom Penh, held a press conference for the media, both Chinese and foreign.
Wang Yi said that I would like to set out China's position on the question of Taiwan, considering that the United States has just spread a lot of false information and false statements in this regard, and that it is all the more important that we make the facts clear in order to set the record straight.
In spite of China's firm opposition and repeated interventions, the President of the United States of America, Perosi, has, in fact, visited the Taiwan region of China in flagrant violation of China's sovereignty, seriously interfered in China's internal affairs, seriously violated the commitments made by the United States and seriously jeopardized peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait, with the connivance and arrangement of the United States Government. China’s position is legitimate, reasonable, legitimate, resolute, proportionate, open, transparent, professional, in accordance with national law, international law, international custom, and with a view to alerting the perpetrators and punishing the “Taiwan independence” forces. We will firmly uphold China's sovereignty and territorial integrity and will firmly deter the United States from its attempts to “opposition China by Taiwan” and break down the illusions of the Taiwan authorities of “profit in the United States”, while at the same time upholding international law and the basic norms of international relations, in particular the most important international law of non-interference in internal affairs, as enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations. If the principle of non-interference in internal affairs is ignored and abandoned, the world will return to the law of the jungle, and the United States will be even more unbridled in its so-called position of power against others, especially the vast majority of small and medium-sized countries. Wang Yi said that that was why more than 100 countries had come out openly and reaffirmed their firm commitment to the one-China policy and their understanding of and support for China's legitimate position. The Secretary-General of the United Nations, Guterres, has clearly stressed that the United Nations will continue to adhere to General Assembly resolution 2758, the core of which is the principle of one China, that there is only one China in the world, that the Government of the People's Republic of China is the sole legitimate Government representing all China and that Taiwan is a part of China. Wang Yi stressed that the United States “a Taiwan-based China” was nothing but an illusion that would prevent Taiwan from returning to its homeland, and that the Chinese nation from moving toward a great renaissance. The “Taiwan independence” forces were more delusional, destined to die, and the noose around their necks would only get tighter.
In response to the United States argument that there had been a precedent for the visit to Taiwan by the President of the United States of America, Wang Yi stressed that the visit to Taiwan by the President of the United States of America, Ginrich, had been a serious mistake and that the Chinese Government had strongly opposed it at that time. The United States has no right and no right to repeat the same mistakes, and cannot use the mistakes of the past as an excuse and justification to repeat them today. Would the United States want to do all the bad things and ugly things that it has done in history? In response to the US claim that China has changed the status quo in the Taiwan Strait, Wang Yi said that this is nothing more than a disinformation and slander. Taiwan has never been a country, China is only one, and China is one on both sides of the Taiwan Straits, and that is what Taiwan has been since ancient times. The 1978 communiqué of the founding of the United States of America clearly emphasized that the Government of the People's Republic of China was the sole legitimate Government representing the whole of China and that Taiwan was part of China, which was the status quo in the Taiwan Strait, which had remained unchanged for decades. But the status quo has indeed been broken. The spoilers are not China, but the separatist forces of the United States and Taiwan. In 2000, the so-called “Law on Relations with Taiwan,” unilaterally engineered by the United States, before the three joint communiqués of the United States and China, changed the status quo. In previous years, the United States side had openly placed the secret so-called “six assurances to Taiwan” in one of its policy statements. Isn’t this a policy of evading one? It is suggested that US politicians take a fresh look at the three joint communiqués and know what the real Taiwan state of affairs is and who has changed the Taiwan state of affairs. The same is true for Taiwan. When the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) came to power, it continued to push for “progressive Taiwan independence” and “de-Chinaization” to create “two Chinas” “one China, one Taiwan, one Taiwan,” on various occasions. In response to reports that the US is increasing its military deployment in the region, Wang Yi expressed the hope that the parties would be vigilant. The US custom is to create problems, and then use them to achieve their goals, but in the face of China, this approach is not working. In response to United States Secretary of State Blinken’s statement at the meeting that the United States wants to respect international law and preserve the sovereignty and territorial integrity of states, Wang Yi said that we have not heard such a statement for a long time, that the United States has done much to date to violate the sovereignty and territorial integrity of other countries, and that we encourage it if it can indeed be done right, but the key is to do the right thing. First and foremost, the commitment to respect China's sovereignty and territorial integrity should be fulfilled in the case of Taiwan, and there should be no further interference in China's internal affairs and no more condoning and supporting the forces of “Taiwan independence”.
