China: G7 Statement over Taiwan ‘Shameless’, Reminiscent of ‘Eight-Power Allied Forces’ | Farsnews Agency

The Spokesperson of the Chinese Mission to the EU on Thursday slammed the statement of the G7 foreign ministers and the EU high representative over China's Taiwan region following US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's visit to the island, stressing it is "ugly" and "shameless", and is reminiscent of the "Eight-Power Allied Forces" that invaded China a hundred years ago.

"What is ugly? What is shameless? The statement of the G7 foreign ministers and EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy is a living specimen of all that…They collude, do evil and call white black," stated the spokesperson on Thursday, noting that they should be held responsible for the many wars and instability in the world, Global Times reported.

The G7 foreign ministers and the EU high representative announced in a joint statement issued on Wednesday that they are concerned by the "threatening actions by China" across the Taiwan Straits, which "risk unnecessary escalation".

The statement called on China not to unilaterally change the status quo by force in the region, and to resolve differences by peaceful means.

The spokesperson of the Chinese Mission slammed the remarks, saying that it is the foreign hostile forces and the separatist forces in Taiwan who have changed the status quo across the Taiwan Straits, and smearing China cannot hide their sinister intention to separate Taiwan from China.

"Who threatened whom and who provoked whom to make situation across the Straits turn into such a situation? It is China's territorial integrity that is seriously threatened and China's sovereignty that is seriously provoked. The measures taken by the Chinese government to safeguard sovereignty and territorial integrity are completely necessary and appropriate," added the spokesperson.

The Chinese Mission described the group as the new "Eight-Power Allied Forces", who invaded China in 1900.

"The Chinese people have long ceased to be bullied and pushed around by foreign powers. Today's world is no longer an era in which Western powers can run amok. What to do about Taiwan is up to 1.4 billion Chinese people," the spokesperson continued.

The spokesperson of the Chinese Embassy of the UK on Wednesday also criticized the joint statement, saying that the fundamental cause of this new round of tension and serious challenges across the Taiwan Strait lies in the repeated attempts from the US and the Taiwan regional authorities who wished to change the status quo.

"We urge the G7 and the EU to avoid being led astray by the US, stop interfering in China's internal affairs and sending wrong signals in any form to secessionist forces seeking 'Taiwan independence'," added the spokesperson.

Pelosi visited the island of Taiwan on late Tuesday despite repeated strong warnings from China.

The PLA will conduct important military exercises and training activities including live-fire drills in six large maritime areas and their air space surrounding the island of Taiwan, in its North, Northeast, East, South, Southwest and Northwest, from Thursday noon to Sunday noon.
