China reveals why it thinks US sent Pelosi to Taiwan — RT World News

Foreign Minister Wang Yi suggests Washington has deliberately heightened tensions in the region

Beijing has hinted that the visit to Taiwan by US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-California) may have been part of a scheme by Washington to create a pretext to further deploy its military In the region.

In a statement made during his visit to Bangladesh and released on Sunday, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said that “there are signs that the United States is trying to repeat its old tricks.” The diplomat clarified that Washington has a history of “first create a problem, then use it to achieve your own strategic plans” elsewhere in the world.

According to the minister, regional actors should oppose the rise of the American military presence near Taiwan. Beijing reminded Washington that “Taiwan is not part of the United States, but of Chinese territory”, and that by greenlighting Pelosi’s visit, the United States had reneged on its previously professed commitment to China’s territorial integrity.

Wang went on to describe China’s strong response, which included, among other things, sanctions, such as “legitimate, reasonable, lawful, necessary, open and appropriate”. He added that the measures in question are intended to “Deterring US Attempt to ‘Use Taiwan to Control China'”.

China’s top diplomat argued that Pelosi’s visit condoned separatist forces supporting Taiwan independence. As the third person in the US government, Pelosi associated with separatists and fought against the Chinese people, he said.

Yi called the principle of non-interference in other nations’ internal affairs the “Golden Rule” for state-to-state relations. “Today, when unilateral bullying is rampant from time to time, the international community should reach a clearer consensus on this, raise its voice, jointly safeguard the basic norms of international law, and jointly safeguard the rights and interests rights of all developing countries.”

China cuts ties with US over critical issues

Bangladesh issued a statement reiterating its support for Beijing “One China” Politics. China regards self-governing Taiwan as a breakaway province and part of sovereign Chinese territory. Official US policy has long been to recognize, but not endorse, China’s claim of sovereignty over Taiwan.

Beijing has issued repeated threats ahead of Pelosi’s visit to Taipei, saying his trip would undermine China’s sovereignty and harm US-China relations. In a phone call with US President Joe Biden days before Pelosi’s Asia-Pacific trip, Chinese President Xi Jinping warned: “Those who play with fire will perish by it.”

After these warnings were ignored and Pelosi made his visit to Taiwan, China severed military and climate relations with Washington.
