The Chinese Foreign Minister, Wang Yi, has conveyed to his counterpart, the United States Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, his disagreement with the latest statements on Taiwan released from Washington and which in Beijing have been interpreted as an attempt to undermine Chinese national sovereignty.

“Sino-US relations are at a critical moment, and it is urgent for both sides to establish a correct way for the two major countries to get along with a responsible attitude towards the world, history and the two peoples,” he said. the Chinese Foreign Ministry in a statement.

Blinken and Yi held a meeting in New York on the sidelines of the 77th United Nations General Assembly and in which the Chinese representative once again tarnished Washington’s position regarding Taiwan.

Thus, China has urged the United States to return to the framework of the joint statements that both countries have launched regarding Taiwan, and has stressed that the conflict on the island “is an internal matter” for Beijing.

In fact, Yi has insisted that “the more rampant Taiwan’s independence activities are, the less likely a peaceful solution will be”, although it is true that the possibility of a Chinese attack on the island was the argument used by the president of United States, Joe Biden, to defend Taiwan.

A week ago, the tenant of the White House parked the traditional ambiguity to make it clear that the United States will defend the island “if there is an unprecedented attack”, although at the same time he declared that, although there are commercial and military relations with Taiwan, in neither case “encourages” independence.

For his part, Blinken acknowledged that relations between China and the United States are “in a very difficult period” and that both nations are interested in bilateral relations returning to a path of stability.

Regarding Taiwan, the US diplomatic representative stressed that Washington does not want a “new Cold War”, and that it has not changed its position regarding the “one China” principle, thus reiterating the lack of US support for the independence of the island.
