The spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China denounced the joint statement issued at the recent G7 Summit held in Hiroshima, Japan, which referred to the situation in the Taiwan Strait as well as the issues of Hong Kong, Xinjiang and Tibet and picked on China’s nuclear forces.
He commented further as follows:
G7 is crying aloud for a “world advancing towards peace, stability and prosperity”, but in reality it is disturbing the global peace, undermining the regional stability and curbing other countries’ development.
Despite grave concerns voiced by China, G7 insisted on including China-related agenda in a bid to tarnish the image of the country, assault it and seriously interfere in its internal affairs.
China expresses strong discontent and opposition in this regard.
Taiwan is part of China, and therefore any issues related to Taiwan belong to Chinese people’s job and should be addressed by Chinese people.
G7, which never fails to talk about peace in the Taiwan Strait, equally never utters a single word against the “independence of Taiwan”. This is, in fact, a tacit consent and support for the forces seeking the “independence of Taiwan”, which, in the long run, will deal a heavy blow to peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait.
No one should underestimate the firm determination and will and strong capability of the Chinese people who are committed to safeguarding the national sovereignty and territorial integrity.
Issues related to Hong Kong, Xinjiang and Tibet pertain to the internal affairs of China. China stands firm in its position against interference by all outside forces in the name of “human rights”.
G7 should stop picking on China with regard to the issues related to Hong Kong, Xinjiang and Tibet, and reflect seriously on their infamous tracks in their history and human rights records.
As far as the so-called “economic blackmail” is concerned, the US, which imposes unilateral sanctions and perpetrates “severance of relations and cut-off of supply chains” on a large scale, is the real “blackmailer” politicizing and weaponizing the economic and trade relations.
We advise G7 not to engage in aiding and abetting economic blackmail.
The spokesman, in conclusion, underscored that the days are gone once and for all when a handful of developed countries interfered in internal affairs of others and decided on global issues as they pleased.
