According to foreign media report, the U.S. congressmen recently have taken a surprise flight to Taiwan and pledged a strong support for “freedom and democracy”, making much ado about the “threat from China”.

Concerning this, China aired its readiness to take all necessary measures to safeguard its national sovereignty and territorial integrity, denouncing the above-mentioned flight as a provocative and perilous act of seriously undermining the political basis of Sino-U.S. relations and aggravating situation in Taiwan Straits.

The Taiwan issue, from A to Z, falls within the internal affairs of China.

The U.S. so often pays lip service that it adheres to the principle of “One China” and does not support the “independence of Taiwan”. But, in practice, it does act in contrast to this.

Then, what is the real purpose of the U.S. that is tenaciously set on the Taiwan issue?

Its ulterior purpose is crystal clear. It is to use Taiwan as an outpost for realizing its Indo-Pacific strategy, the main focus of which is to contain China.

This year alone, the U.S. administration has sent high-level delegations to Taiwan one after another, sold military equipment for maintenance of “Patriot” guided missile system, and sent in warships frequently to the waters off Taiwan islands, intentionally aggravating the regional situation. All these substantiate this.

Recently, the political figures and media of the U.S. are making a fuss about the “China’s invasion of Taiwan”, unreasonably linking the Taiwan issue to the Ukrainian crisis. This is intended to stir up anti-China public sentiment on the international scale, justify its support for “Taiwan independence” forces, and step up its strategy of containing China.

The U.S. is trying to use the Taiwan issue not only as a weapon for containing the rise of China but also as a leverage for bringing together its allies to maintain its supremacy in the Asia-Pacific region.

The ambition of the U.S. to maintain the world hegemony also entails a potential danger of touching off the delicate situation on the Korean peninsula.

Under the pretext of coping with “threats from China and DPRK”, the U.S. is hell-bent on bringing all sorts of strategic assets into the vicinity of the Korean peninsula and conducting joint military exercises with its allies. This stands as a clear manifestation of its sinister intention to stifle both the DPRK and China, the socialist states.

It is a same old trick of the U.S. that it pursues its wild ambition of domination and geopolitical interests by deceiving the international society and inciting confrontation and discord between countries while hyping up the “threats” from others.

The rash maneuver of the U.S. interfering into the internal affairs of the others undermines the peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region and aggravates the situation. This is doomed to failure by the strong opposition and rejection of peoples of China and other Asian countries.
