On the afternoon of March 7, the Fourth Session of the 13th National People’s Congress held a press conference in the Press Conference Hall of the Great Hall of the People. State Councilor and Minister of Foreign Affairs Wang Yi was invited to answer Chinese and foreign journalists on “China’s foreign policy and foreign relations”. Ask a question.

Phoenix TV reporter: We are concerned that the Trump administration has lifted restrictions on US-Taiwan exchanges. Some think tanks have listed the Sino-US crisis on the Taiwan issue as the world’s highest potential conflict. How does China view the US’s Taiwan policy?

Wang Yi: Regarding the Taiwan issue, I want to emphasize three points:

Wang Yi: First of all, there is only one China in the world, and Taiwan is a Chinese territory. Part of the division is a historical and legal fact, and it is also a general consensus of the international community.

Second, the two sides of the Taiwan Strait must be reunified and must be reunified. This is the general trend and the collective will of the Chinese nation. It will not change, nor can it be changed. The Chinese government is unwavering in its determination to safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity. We are capable of thwarting any form of “Taiwan independence” separatist actions.

Thirdly, the one-China principle is the political foundation of Sino-US relations and an insurmountable red line. The Chinese government has no room for compromise on the Taiwan issue and no room for concessions. We urge the new administration of the United States to fully understand the high sensitivity of the Taiwan issue, to abide by the one-China principle and the three Sino-U.S. joint communiqués, to completely change the previous administration’s dangerous practices of “crossing the line” and “playing with fire”, and be prudent and proper. Deal with Taiwan-related issues.
