Foreign Ministry Spokesperson’s Remarks on US Senator’s Visit to Taiwan
2022-08-26 21:24

Q: It is reported that US Republican Senator Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee is on a visit to Taiwan from August 25 to 27. What is China’s comment?

A: The US lawmaker’s visit to China’s Taiwan region seriously violates the one-China principle and the provisions of the three China-US joint communiqués, and goes against the US’s commitment of maintaining only unofficial ties with the Taiwan region. The Chinese side deplores and firmly rejects this.

There is only one China in the world and Taiwan is an inalienable part of China’s territory. The government of the People’s Republic of China is the sole legal government representing the whole of China. We will not waver in opposing “Taiwan independence” separatist activities and external interference. We urge the relevant US politician to abide by the one-China principle and the three China-US joint communiqués, immediately stop all forms of official interactions with Taiwan, and immediately stop sending wrong signals to “Taiwan independence” separatist forces. China will continue to take strong measures to resolutely defend national sovereignty and territorial integrity.
