China stressed that it will not make concessions or compromise on issues affecting its core national and security interests, including its sovereignty and territorial integrity.
This came at a conference of Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin today, Friday, in response to US President Joe Biden’s statements on Taiwan, in which he said that the United States would defend Taiwan militarily if China launched an attack on the island.
The Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman said that no one should underestimate China’s determination and ability to ensure the protection of its sovereignty, stressing that Taiwan is an inalienable part of China.
He added that there is no need to stand up to 1.4 billion Chinese as Taiwan is an inalienable part of China, and its affairs are China’s internal affairs, and it cannot tolerate external interference.
The Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman urged the United States to strictly abide by the one-China principle be careful in its statements, and not send flimsy signals to the separatist forces calling for Taiwan independence to avoid serious damage to US-China relations.
A few days ago, the Chinese president promised the people of his country to reunite with Taiwan, but in a “peaceful” manner.
However, Taiwan had announced before that, the Chinese Air Force’s carried out the largest incursion into its air defense, as 38 Chinese planes flew in two waves, coinciding with Beijing’s celebration of the founding of the “People’s Republic of China.
The Chinese military on Sunday denounced the United States and Canada for sailing a US warship and a Canadian frigate through the Taiwan Strait last weekend, saying they threaten peace and stability in the region.
China says Taiwan is an inalienable part of its territory and its air force has carried out frequent missions in the Taiwan Air Defense Identification Zone over the past year or so, angering Taipei.
