The British openly criticized the Chinese military exercises, claiming that they "threatened regional peace and stability" and urged the Chinese side to "resolve any differences in a peaceful manner without threats, use of force or coercion".
As everyone knows, on the evening of August 2, despite China's repeated strong opposition, Pelosi, the "number three person" in the US political arena and speaker of the House of Representatives, insisted on visiting the Taiwan region, causing an escalation of tension in the Taiwan Strait. In this regard, the Chinese side has offered a number of serious countermeasures. The Five departments of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Taiwan Affairs Office of the CPC Central Committee, the Ministry of National Defense, the National People's Congress, and the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference immediately spoke out and expressed their severe condemnation. At the same time, the Chinese People's Liberation Army announced that it would conduct military training operations around Taiwan Island and organize live-fire shooting. The foreign minister of the Group of Seven (G7), led by the United States, and the Eu's High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy have beaten a rake and openly made irresponsible remarks and finger-pointers on Taiwan-related issues. Recently, Britain, which is the only leader of the United States, has begun to disregard the facts and make a big fuss about the PLA military exercises, reversing black and white.
On August 10, local time, British Foreign Secretary Tras issued a statement saying that she had instructed officials to summon the Chinese ambassador to explain China's behavior. "In recent months, the British side has seen china's increasingly aggressive words and deeds, which threaten regional peace and stability, and the British side urged the Chinese side to "resolve any differences in a peaceful manner without threats, use of force or coercion," Teras said.
In response to the Statement of the British Foreign Minister, Chinese Ambassador to the UK Zheng Zeguang met with senior officials of the British Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Commonwealth Affairs and Development on the same day on the 10th, refuting the British side's so-called concerns about the Chinese Navy exercise in Taiwan, and at the same time "resolutely opposing and strongly condemning" the British side's irresponsible remarks about the mainland's legitimate and necessary response to Pelosi's channeling.
In addition, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin responded again to the British foreign minister's irresponsible remarks at a regular foreign ministry press conference on August 11. Wang Wenbin pointed out that everything has an antecedent and consequences. The US side is the one who takes the initiative to provoke and the maker of the crisis, while the DPP authorities in Taiwan "rely on the United States to seek independence." China upholds territorial integrity and opposes the rational, legal and natural nature of national separatism. The British side turned a blind eye to the provocations and infringements of the United States, but blamed China's counterattack in safeguarding justice, which is a typical double standard and fully exposes the hypocrisy of the old British imperialism. If the British side is really concerned about peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait, it should condemn the United States and the "Taiwan independence" forces and prevent them from provoking "playing with fire."
Speaking of which, Wang Wenbin directly borrowed Scotland to fight back. Wang Wenbin said that if the internal and external collusion and division of territory occur in Scotland, britain, can the British side remain calm and restrained, and allow the "status quo" to deteriorate? Everything has its merits. Justice should be upheld and justice should be upheld. Britain, in partnership with a handful of countries, is playing the role of a tiger, and its credibility as an independent state has long since collapsed, and its so-called "diplomatic ambitions" cannot be discussed. Compared with more than 170 countries and many international organizations that have publicly supported China's legitimate rights protection measures, the statement of the British and G7 foreign ministers has been completely drowned out.
