The state councilor and foreign minister said Sunday that China-US relations have been affected at all levels by the misleading US policy toward China, when meeting with US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken.
Mr. Wang emphasized that the United States in particular had unreasonably interfered in China’s internal affairs.
The United States is also creating groups to contain China globally, and is even putting pressure to do so on many small and medium-sized countries, Wang said, adding that such practices run counter to the interests of the two peoples and the interests of the two countries. The two countries, to the international community’s aspirations and development trends at the time. This is why China has clearly expressed its opposition to this flawed policy, he said.
Wang said that the most urgent task of both parties at present is to earnestly implement the consensus reached by the two heads of state, make necessary political preparations, and create conditions required for the next stage of exchanges.
The Taiwan issue is the most sensitive issue between China and the United States, Wang said, adding that if it is mismanaged, it will cause widespread damage to bilateral relations.
“We urge the United States to realize the serious harm caused by the idea of ’Taiwan independence’, and to pursue real and not deceptive one-China policy, and fulfill its commitments to China. Sincerely and not betrayal. We also urge the United States to truly implement the one-China policy and translate it into actions, rather than than saying one thing and doing another,” Mr. Wang.
For his part, Blinken reiterated that the United States will continue to adhere to the one-China policy, and the two sides should develop bilateral relations in the spirit of mutual respect. He noted that the United States is ready to maintain communication with China, responsibly handle their differences, and strive to avoid confrontations and crises.
Wang also expressed China’s serious concern over various issues in which the United States has violated China’s legitimate rights and interests, and called on the US side to change course and bring China-US relations back to the path of healthy development.
