China informs US to stop going further down wrong direction


(MENAFN) The US "should stop going further down the wrong direction" when a second group of American lawmakers reached Taiwan, Beijing's UN representative cautioned on Monday.

The delegation of US politicians reached Taiwan on Sunday evening on a two-day trip that is likely to further increase US-Sino strains when China responded with anger to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's trip earlier in August.

In reply to Pelosi's trip, Beijing started large-scale military trainings near Taiwan, and drew down collaboration with the US on military-to-military contacts and climate change.

"The whole world is seeing clearly who is provoking, who is changing the status quo, and who is trying to create troubles in that part of the world," Zhang Jun informed journalists at the UN's New York headquarters.

"And for China, definitely, we will continue to do whatever we can to defend our sovereignty and territorial integrity. It shows also clearly that the countermeasures we have taken in response to such provocative acts are justified, are legitimate," he went on to claim.
