Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi accused the US of sending perilous and wrong signals to Taiwan, insisting the United States had no right to intervene on issues between China and Taiwan.
In a discussion between Wang Yi and the United States Secretary of State Anthony Blinken at the United Nations General Assembly, Wang Yi reiterated their stand on a One China Policy which they won’t allow any external interference.
Tension has been on the rise between China and Taiwan following United States Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to the Island, a situation that forced China to embark on military drills along the island.
Since Pelosi’s visit, strain the relationship between the US and China as the United States became adamant about protecting Taiwan and recognizing the sovereignty of the people of the island at the expense of Beijing’s warning.
Wang Yi says, China will possibly do every to see a peaceful Taiwan reunification, and that, the United States should stay off the Island, saying the more the agitation for Taiwan’s independence, the farther the peaceful resolution would be.
“The Taiwan issue is an internal Chinese matter, and the United States has no right to interfere in what method will be used to settle it, we must oppose and prevent Taiwan from independent, Wang Yi said.
Reacting to Wang Yi’s speech, Anthony Blinken make it crystal clear on their stand with the One-China policy, saying the United States’ approach to the policy remains but maintained that, peace and stability across the Strait remain paramount.
In a meeting this week on the UNGA, China continues to remain factual to western countries willing to hasten Taiwan’s independence to back off from doing such.
Taiwan is one of the Chinese provinces, and we have long promised to bring it under control, but we have not ruled out the use of force in doing so.
“Anybody that plays with fire will get burnt.” A remark which President Xi told President Biden over Taiwan.
The US said they are committed to the sovereignty of Taiwan and their stance hasn’t changed over the years, and that Taiwan’s 23 million should be allowed to decide their future.
President Xi and President Biden will in November at the G20 summit have the opportunity to talk about the situation in Taiwan, a meeting which will be the first between the two leaders.
