Speaking at a press conference on November 25, according to Reuters news agency, Chinese Defense Ministry spokesman Wu Qian said maintaining a healthy and stable relationship is good for both sides. is what the world is waiting for. And China is willing to maintain exchanges and cooperation with the US.
“However, the US side has made irresponsible and provocative statements many times on the Taiwan issue. China has no room for compromise and the US side should have no illusions about this,” spokesman Wu said. Khiem said.
China has always considered Taiwan an inalienable part of its territory. Beijing says Taiwan is the most sensitive issue in its relations with Washington.
Earlier, on November 17, US President Joe Biden stated that the US had not changed its “One China” policy and affirmed that the US did not support Taiwan independence.
However, Mr. Biden also said the US was only doing what the Taiwan Relations Act required.
The law, which has been in effect since 1979, stipulates that even though it has no official relations with Taiwan, the US government needs to provide weapons to ensure that Taipei has the ability to defend itself. This is the legal basis for the US to continuously supply weapons to Taiwan to counter Beijing’s military adventures.
