Chinese Foreign Ministry: US concentrating forces for new crisis in Taiwan Strait

The US government is strengthening its military presence in the region to provoke an even more serious crisis in the Taiwan Strait – as stated by China’s State Councillor and Foreign Minister, Wang Yi, TASS reports


As noted by Wang Yi, the United States is not ready to recognise its defeat, “It is primarily necessary to be wary of the fact that the United States will not be able to accept its defeat. It is uniting particular partners to add fuel to the fire. It is increasing military presence in the region and will contribute to escalation of the situation, while planning to create a new, even larger crisis.”

The Chinese official added that ‘pro-independence forces of Taiwan’ may continue to arrange provocations and ‘go even further’. He believes some foreign politicians may try to take advantage of the current situation around Taiwan for their own purposes and extract personal benefits from it by staging a political show.

Moreover, Wang Yi called the US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s recent visit to Taiwan a political provocation and a farce.
