The Ministry of Foreign Affairs responds to the Joint Statement of the Foreign Ministers of the United States, Japan and Australia


2022-08-08: [Chinese Article Link]  Source: Global Times. On August 8, the spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Wang Wenbin, presided over the routine press conference. A journalist questioned that, on 5 August, following a trilateral strategic dialogue between United States Secretary of State Blinken, Australian Foreign Minister Hwang Young-hyun and Japanese Foreign Minister Hwang Ying-hyun, a joint statement reaffirming the three countries' one-China policy and their basic position on Taiwan remained unchanged, was accompanied by a parenthesis after a Chinese policy “where applicable”. The same statement was made last week in the joint statement by the Ministers for Foreign Affairs of the Group of Seven and the High Representative of the European Union. In response, Wang Wenbin expressed the view that the one-China principle is the general consensus of the international community, the accepted basic norms of international relations and an integral part of the post-World War II international order, as recognized by the General Assembly in its resolution 2758, and the political basis for the establishment and development of diplomatic relations between China and the countries concerned. The official legal opinion of the United Nations Secretariat clearly states that Taiwan, as a province of China, has no independent status. It is illegal and invalid for individual countries to attempt to distort the China principle and empty it by adding various prefixes to it. Wang Wenbin said that the meaning of the one-China principle was clear and clear: there was only one China in the world, Taiwan was a part of China, the Government of the People's Republic of China was the only legitimate Government representing all of China, and the application of the one-China principle was universal, unconditional and indisputable. Wang Wenbin stated that all States Members of the United Nations that establish diplomatic relations with China should unconditionally abide by the one-China principle and comply with General Assembly resolution 2758, and that the practice of individual States was in fact a distorted interpretation of the one-China principle, essentially challenging the fundamental principles of international law and the basic norms of international relations, as well as the post-World War II international order. Wang Wenbin states that we urge individual countries to read their history and to abide by the solemn promises made in the year in black and white, and to recognize the dangers and dangers of treachery and the pursuit of the “Taiwan independence” forces.
