US sending ‘dangerous signals’ to Taiwan: Wang Yi tells Blinken

Chinese foreign minister during his meeting with Antony Blinken has alleged the US of sending “very wrong, dangerous signals” and has stated that it has “no right to interfere” in any methods used by Beijing to “resolve” the Taiwan issue.

As per a Reuters report, On Friday, the US state secretary met with his Chinese Counterpart to have a face-to-face 90 minutes “direct and honest” talk on the Taiwan issue, on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly session held in New York.

In a statement on the meeting, China’s foreign ministry said Washington was sending “very wrong, dangerous signals” about Taiwan, and that the more blatant Taiwan’s independence activity, the less likely a peaceful resolution would be, as cited by Aljazeera.

“The Taiwan issue is an internal Chinese matter, and the United States has no right to interfere in what method will be used to resolve it,” Wang told Blinken.

Whereas, according to the report the senior US official said: “For our part, the secretary made crystal clear that, in accordance with our long-standing one-China policy, which again has not changed, the maintenance of peace and stability across the Strait is absolutely, vitally important,”
