China rejects US’s accusations on issues relating to Taiwan My Country

BEIJING: China once again vehemently rejected US’s accusations on the issues relating to Taiwan, stating ‘there is only one China in the world’.

Taiwan is an inseparable part of China and the US has no right at all to pick on relevant countries who chose to develop relations with China on the basis of the one-China principle, said Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying while commenting on the recent speech of US Vice President Mike Pence in when he leveled accusations against China on issues related to Taiwan, the South China Sea.

He said “Taiwan independence” forces and their separatist activities pose the gravest threat to peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait.

We urge the US to earnestly abide by the one-China principle and the stipulations of the three China-US Joint Communiqués, prudently and properly handle Taiwan-related issues, and work with China in opposing and restraining “Taiwan independence” forces while bearing in mind the larger picture of China-US relations and peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait.

China has indisputable sovereignty over the South China Sea islands and their adjacent waters. Installing necessary national defense facilities on the Nansha Islands which are our territory is China exercising its right of self-preservation and self-defense as a sovereign state in accordance with international law. It has nothing to do with “militarization”.

We urge the US to stop stirring up troubles and creating tensions. The US should respect efforts made by relevant parties to resolve the issue through negotiation and consultation.

The Chinese government attaches high importance to protecting and promoting human rights. People of all ethnic groups in China are entitled to full freedom of religious belief in accordance with law.

As to how China’s human rights record is, the Chinese people have a greater say than all others. Our advice for the US is to buy itself a mirror and take a look at itself, and spend more time thinking about its own human rights problems, instead of exploiting human rights and religious issues to interfere in China’s internal affairs.”
