    Following the meeting with representatives of the American side, Chinese Ambassador to the United States Qin Gang commented on the steps taken by Beijing in response to the visit to Taiwan of the Speaker of the House of Representatives of the United States Congress Nancy Pelosi. The corresponding statement of the head of the diplomatic mission is available on the official website of the diplomatic mission.

    Despite Beijing’s warnings, the American side decided to organize Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan. This caused real damage to stability in the Taiwan Strait and at the global level, hitting Sino-US relations, the report says.

    At the same time, the United States did not hesitate to accuse China, which organized a number of retaliatory measures, of escalating tensions. Beijing considers the actions of the Chinese army near the island of Taiwan to be necessary measures aimed at protecting the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the PRC, Qin Gang stressed.

    The United States should be mindful of its obligations to uphold the One China principle and not support “separatists in Taiwan.” In addition, Washington needs to start correcting errors related to Pelosi’s trip to the island as soon as possible, the ambassador said.

    The day before, Qin Gang was summoned to the White House, where the American side, represented by the representative of the National Security Council, expressed claims in connection with the start of large-scale military exercises by China near Taiwan.
