US ambassador to the United States will visit Taiwan, Chinese delegation to the United States lambast the United States: crazy provocation!

US Secretary of State Pompeo said in a statement on the State Department’s website on Tuesday (Eastern Time) that US Ambassador to the United Nations Kraft will visit Taiwan on January 13 and 15, while the US Mission to the United Nations announced on Tuesday that Kraft will meet senior officials in Taiwan. The Chinese mission to the UN was furious, calling the US move a “crazy provocation”.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Kraft Kraft will visit Taiwan on January 13 and 15 to hold talks with senior officials and diplomats; The statement also stressed that during Kraft’s visit to Taiwan, he will strengthen his firm and sustained support for the international space, guided by the principles of the U.S. One-China Policy, including the Taiwan Relations Act, the three U.S.-China Joint Communiques and the Six Assurances.

In response, the Chinese delegation to the United Nations issued a statement, repeatedly claiming that “there is only one China in the world, the government of the People’s Republic of China is the sole legal government representing the whole of China, and Taiwan is an inalienable part of the Chinese territory,” and said that the United States has made clear commitments in three joint communiques, including the Communique on the Establishment of Diplomacy between China and the United States.

The Chinese delegation to the UN stressed its firm opposition to any form of official exchanges between the US and Taiwan, saying that the US is “engaging in political manipulation on the Taiwan issue”. The Chinese side said that any act that undermines China’s core interests will not succeed and reminded the US that “those who play with fire will get burned.”

The Chinese delegation to the UN called the US move “crazy provocation” and urged the US to stop creating new difficulties for China-US relations and bilateral cooperation at the UN and to stop going further down the wrong path, adding that the US “will surely pay a heavy price for its wrong act”.
