Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunyong announced that the measures to respond to the visit of US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan will be strong and swift.
“This morning, Foreign Minister [Wang Yi] made statements that China will do whatever it takes to defend its territory, and the United States will be responsible for everything that happens,” Chuenong said at a press briefing. “The response measures will be strong and swift.”
Chuenong also considered that Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan sent the wrong message to the separatists there, noting that this visit violates the principle of one China, and destabilizes China’s territory.
The Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman pointed out that many countries, including Russia, expressed their support for the one-China principle and Beijing’s efforts to maintain its sovereignty and territorial integrity, adding: “After Pelosi’s visit, people from various countries denounced this unwise, wrong and reckless visit and expressed their support for the one-China principle. “
