The Chinese spokesperson said that “there is only one China in the world, and Taiwan is an inalienable part of Chinese territory, with the government of the People’s Republic of China as the sole legal government of China.” .

“The United States has made solemn commitments on the Taiwan question and the one-China principle in the three Sino-American joint communiques,” the spokesperson said, adding that the recent U.S. decision on the issue is would turn against them and burn the United States itself.

“This kind of political manipulation on the Taiwan issue is an attempt to change the status quo in the Taiwan Strait and will inevitably fan a fire that just burns,” Zhao told the United States.

Zhao called on the United States to abide by the one-China principle and the stipulations of the three Sino-US joint communiqués as well as the political commitments made with China on the Taiwan issue.

In this sense, the official demanded an end to political manipulation on the Taiwan issue, which is, according to China, the most sensitive and vital issue in its relations with the United States.

Zhao said Washington “should implement President Biden’s statement that the United States does not support Taiwan independence.” The Chinese government regards the democratically ruled island as inviolable Chinese territory.
