Statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People's Republic of China
Beijing, Aug. 2 (Xinhua) -- Statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People's Republic of China
On August 2, the United States congress President pelosi regardless of China's strong opposition and solemn representations, visiting Taiwan, a serious violation of the one-china principle and the three sino-us joint communiques, severely impact the political basis for china-us relations, seriously violate China's sovereignty and territorial integrity, serious damage to peace and stability across the Taiwan strait, to the "Taiwan independence" secessionist forces signal serious mistakes. China is firmly opposed to and strongly condemns this and has lodged solemn representations and strong protests with the US side.
There is only one China in the world, Taiwan is an inalienable part of Chinese territory, and the government of the People's Republic of China is the only legal government representing the whole of China. This is clearly stated in General Assembly Resolution 2758 of 1971. Since the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949, 181 countries have established diplomatic relations with China on the basis of the One-China principle. The One-China principle is the universal consensus of the international community and the basic norms governing international relations.
In 1979, the United States made a clear commitment in the Communique on the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and the United States: "The United States of America recognizes the government of the People's Republic of China as the sole legal government of China. In this context, the people of the United States will maintain cultural, commercial and other non-official relations with the people of Taiwan." As an integral part of the US government, the US Congress should strictly abide by the One-China policy of the US government and refrain from having any official contacts with China's Taiwan region. China has always opposed US congressmen's visits to Taiwan, and the US executive branch has the responsibility to stop them. Speaker Pelosi is the current leader of the US Congress. Her visit to Taiwan in any form or for any reason is a major political provocation to upgrade official exchanges between the US and Taiwan. China will never accept it and the Chinese people will never allow it.
The Taiwan question is the most important, core and sensitive issue in China-Us relations. At present, the situation across the Taiwan Straits is facing a new round of tension and severe challenges. The fundamental reason is that the Taiwan authorities and the United States keep changing the status quo. The Taiwan authorities have repeatedly "relied on the US to seek independence", refused to recognize the 1992 Consensus, vigorously pursued "de-sinification" and promoted "progressive Taiwan independence". The US, on the other hand, tries to make China out of Taiwan, distorts the One-China principle, strengthens official exchanges with Taiwan, and supports separatist activities for "Taiwan independence". This is a very dangerous act of playing with fire. Those who play with fire will get burned.
The position of the Chinese government and people on the Taiwan question has been consistent. It is the firm will of the over 1.4 billion Chinese people to firmly safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity, and the complete reunification of the motherland is the common aspiration and sacred duty of all the sons and daughters of the Chinese nation. Public opinion cannot be violated, and the general trend is irreversible. No country, force or person should misjudge the strong determination, determination and capability of the Chinese government and people to safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity and realize national reunification and rejuvenation. China will take all necessary measures to firmly safeguard its national sovereignty and territorial integrity. The US side and the "Taiwan independence" secessionist forces must be held responsible for all the consequences arising therefrom.
As two major countries, the right way for China and the United States to get along is mutual respect, peaceful coexistence, avoidance of confrontation and win-win cooperation. The Taiwan QUESTION IS PURELY AN INTERNAL AFFAIR OF China, AND NO OTHER COUNTRY HAS THE RIGHT TO BE A MAGISTRATE ON THE Taiwan QUESTION. China's serious, urge the us side to stop playing "Taiwan" brand "in China from Taiwan", to stop meddling in Taiwan affairs to interfere in China's internal affairs, stop in various forms to support baby "Taiwan independence" secessionist forces, stop talking out on the Taiwan issue, do a set, stop distorting falsified hollowed the one-china principle, take concrete actions to abide by the one-china principle and the three sino-us joint communiques, We should faithfully implement the "four nots and no intentions" commitments made by the US leaders and not go further down the wrong and dangerous path.
