Beijing, ANI. China is infuriated by America’s growing ties with Taiwan. Angered by the ongoing talks between the United States and Taiwan, China has asked Washington to stop escalating ties with Taiwan. A spokesman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry said that China condemns this dialogue and strongly opposes it.
Zhao Lijian said the United States should sincerely abide by the One-China Principle and the terms of the three Sino-US joint communiqués and stop escalating ties with Taiwan. Washington must cease any official dialogue and contact with Taiwan. The Chinese spokesman issued a stern warning to Taiwanese officials, saying that any attempt by the United States and other foreign support could prove dangerous.
Earlier this week Jose W. Fernandez, Under Secretary for Economic Development, Energy and Environment, led the American Institute (AIT) in Taiwan and the second annual US-Taiwan Economic Prosperity Partnership Dialogue (EPPD). The US State Department said in a statement that both sides welcomed the talks as an opportunity to deepen cooperation and strengthen the economic partnership between the two economies.
Let us tell you that Beijing claims full sovereignty over Taiwan. Despite the fact that the two sides have been governed separately for more than seven decades. Taipei has countered Chinese aggression by increasing strategic ties with other countries, including the US, which has been repeatedly opposed by Beijing.
