Japanese foreign minister: open to dialogue with China
2022-08-07: [Article Link] In response to a visit to Taiwan by the Speaker of the House of Representatives of the United States Congress, Pelosi, the PLA has been responding strictly to military exercises around the Taiwan Strait, and Japan has since said three things about Taiwan, even “punching china”. According to Reuters local time, on 5 August, Japanese Minister for Foreign Affairs Hayashi justly stated that Japan remained open to dialogue with China, as maintaining the integrity of communication was all the more important at a time of tension between the two countries.
“In this tense situation, good communication is important, and Japan has always been open to dialogue with China.” Lin Fang is saying.

It was also reported that Lin Fang had revealed that he himself had spoken at the East Asia Summit (EAS) Foreign Ministers in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, on the morning of 5 August, and that the Foreign Ministers of China and Russia had left the table at the same time, confirming earlier statements by the media and some diplomatic figures.
“I think Foreign Minister Wang Yi left the table for some time during the meeting, including when I spoke.” He added that Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov was not there.

Earlier, according to the Japanese Joint News Agency, The Dynasty News, on 5 August, a number of diplomatic figures confirmed that, at the East Asian Summit Foreign Minister's meeting that day, when Japanese Foreign Minister Hayashi was speaking, the Chinese State Councillor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi and Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov withdrew at the same time.
The Achilles News read it as a protest against the so-called Taiwan-related statements made by the countries of the Group of Seven (G7) and the European Union, including Japan, in the wake of the Pelosi invasion.

On 3 August, Foreign Minister G7 and the High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy of the European Union, including Japan, issued a statement in which they stated that the actions taken by the Chinese approach to the Peroxi station could raise tensions and destabilize the region and called on China not to unilaterally change the status quo by force and to resolve the differences between the two sides by peaceful means. At the regular press conference on 4 August, the spokesman for the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Hua Chunjing, stated that the Chinese people were extremely dissatisfied with the fact that Japan, in conjunction with the G7 countries and the European Union, had made a joint statement accusing China without justification and had turned its back on the United States violation of China's sovereignty. To that end, China no longer arranged a meeting between the Foreign Minister of China and Japan in Phnom Penh. Japan was responsible for its history of Taiwan and was not in a position to say anything about Taiwan. On the same day, the Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs of China, Deng Hoon, was instructed to meet urgently with the Ambassador of Japan to China, Takutsufo, and to address the Japanese side with regard to the false statements made by Foreign Minister G7 and the High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy of the European Union.
Deng Hoon stated that Japan, in conjunction with G7 and the European Union, had issued false statements that sent a serious false signal to the international community about the nature of the grave consequences of the false acts that the United States had condoned by allowing Palosi to operate in violation of China's sovereignty, unjustifiably accused of discrediting the Chinese side, grossly interfering in China's internal affairs, grossly violating the basic norms of international relations and the principles of the four political documents of China and Japan. In addition to making a false statement about it, Japan has taken advantage of the recent military exercises of the Liberation Army (PLA) around Taiwan Island to stage yet again the so-called “Japan's exclusive economic zone”.
On 4 August, the Japan Common News Agency, the Japan Broadcasting Association (NHK), reported to the media that evening, the Japanese Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Ken Liang Mori, claimed that five of the ballistic missiles fired by the People's Liberation Army (PLA) during military performances on that day fell within the “Japan's exclusive economic zone”. And just before the protests were launched by the Japanese side, the spokesman for the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Hua Chunjing, had responded to questions about “Japan's exclusive economic zone” at a regular press conference two days in a row.
On August 4th, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs hosted a regular press conference in Hua Chunxing.
On 3 August, Hua Chunjing stated that the military training activities carried out by the Chinese army in the sea off Taiwan Island of China were necessary and legitimate steps to counter the major provocations of the United States and the “Taiwan independence” separatist forces and to firmly defend the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the country. China has not yet demarcated the area in question, and China does not accept the term “Japan's exclusive economic zone”. On 4 August, Hua Chunxing once again responded unequivocally that there was no delimitation of the maritime area in China, so there was no claim that China's military operations were located or entered into the “Japan's exclusive economic zone.” The relevant Chinese authorities had issued an announcement that the military operations in question were in full conformity with international law and practice.
