CHINA: China reiterated its tough stance on Sunday, claiming that Taiwan has never been a country and accusing the US of trying to undermine the one-China policy to alter the Taiwan Strait status quo.
The “Taiwan Relations Act” and the “Six Assurances” to Taiwan, “which it unilaterally invented before the three China-U.S. joint communiqués,” are just two examples of the measures China highlighted as evidence that the US was trying to undermine the status quo in the Taiwan Strait.
“In order to fully comprehend what the status quo is and who is changing it, the US administration should reread and carefully reexamine the three joint communiqués between China and the US,” suggested Qin Gang in a tweet.
Blinken claims that China wants to alter the status quo with Taiwan.
After US Secretary of State Antony Blinken accused China of conducting military exercises and missile launches in response to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to the island, China responded with a stern denial.
The top US ambassador declared that China’s military reaction, including launching missiles into Japan’s exclusive economic zone, was unjustified. He claimed that although US policy toward China and Taiwan hasn’t changed, Beijing is acting more provocatively to upset the status quo.
On August 4, China declared that its navy, air force, and other organisations were conducting military drills in six zones surrounding Taiwan. China has frequently threatened military action in reaction to Taiwan’s efforts to enhance its de facto independence with the support of important allies like the US and its isolationist diplomatic efforts.
