Chinese Foreign Ministry published a statement claiming that the U.S. has broken one-China sovereignty by interfering
The U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan has sparked controversies and criticism from the territory of mainland China. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson said today that Pelosi visiting Taiwan is not about democracy rather it is an issue about China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People’s Republic of China has issued a statement today where they claimed that the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representative Nancy Pelosi has violated the one-China principle and the provisions regarding the China-U.S. joint communiqués after visiting the Taiwan region.
According to the statement, it has trembled the foundation of China-U.S. relations and disputed Chinese sovereignty and territorial integrity as it will provoke the separatist forces to initiate ‘Taiwan Independence’ which is strongly opposed by China. As Taiwan is an “inalienable part of China’s territory,” and is represented by the Government of the People’s Republic of China as a whole Chinese nation. The statement has also claimed that this has been recognized by the United Nations General assembly Resolution 2758 of 1971 and 181 countries who have tied diplomatic relations with China on the basis of their one-China principle.
According to the statement in 1979, the United States also made a commitment while signing diplomatic relations as a part of the China-U.S. Joint Communiqué which states, “The United States of America recognizes the Government of the People’s Republic of China as the sole legal Government of China. Within this context, the people of the United States will maintain cultural, commercial, and other unofficial relations with the people of Taiwan.” According to the commitment the U.S. is obliged to maintain the one-China policy and should abstain from having any official exchanges with China’s Taiwan region.
The statement also claimed that China has opposed the U.S. Congressmembers from visiting China all along and the U.S. executives will also stop such activities as per the commitment.
