MADRID, 5 Ago. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The Chinese authorities have summoned the Japanese ambassador to the country, Terry Hideo, on Friday in protest at the comments made by the G7 ministers about the situation in Taiwan and the "threatening words" of the Chinese government after the visit of the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi.
The Chinese Vice Foreign Minister, Deng Li, has thus ordered that Hideo be summoned urgently due to the "erroneous" comments to which the country has joined and has indicated that Japan, together with the G7 and the European Union, have "confused good and evil". "They have violated the documents signed by both countries and have sent the wrong signal to the international community," he asserted.
For this reason, he assured, "China firmly opposes and condemns these statements", Deng pointed out in a statement in which he clarified that Taiwan is an "inalienable part of Chinese territory", so that issues related to the island "form part of the internal affairs" of the country.
"Pelosi visited Taiwan and was involved in a political provocation. (...) To safeguard the sovereignty and territorial integrity of China, reasonable, legitimate and justifiable countermeasures have been taken," she said before indicating that "this is the will of 1.4 billion Chinese who oppose secession and who want the reunification of the motherland."
In this sense, he has emphasized the importance of "rejecting secession by all means and costs". In addition, he has recalled that the Taiwan issue has to do with the "very foundation of the relationship between China and Japan." "Japan once colonized Taiwan for a long period of time and bears grave historical guilt in relation to the matter. It should be more cautious in its pronouncement," she said.
"We urgently ask Japan to adhere to the principles of the four current political documents and their commitments regarding the Taiwanese issue, stop interfering in internal affairs and handle the issue properly," he said.
