BEIJING, Nov 25 ― There is no room for compromise over Taiwan and the United States should not have any illusions about this, China's Defence Ministry said today, adding that Washington had of late made a series of “provocations” on several issues.

China says the issue of Taiwan, which it claims as Chinese territory, is the most sensitive in its ties with the United States, the country that is also Taiwan's most important international backer and arms supplier.

Sharp differences over Taiwan persisted during a virtual meeting earlier this month between US President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping. Xi said that those in Taiwan who seek independence, and their supporters in the United States, were “playing with fire”.

Asked at a monthly news briefing in Beijing to comment on Sino-US military ties in the light to those talks, Chinese Defence Ministry spokesman Wu Qian said having a healthy and stable relationship was good for both and what the world expected.

China is willing to maintain exchanges and cooperation with the United States, he added.

“However, for a period of time, the US side has said a lot of irresponsible things and done a lot of provocative things on Taiwan, the South China Sea, and close up reconnaissance by warships and aircraft,” Wu said.

China has principles for the development of relations between the two militaries, which is to say its sovereignty, dignity, and core interests cannot be violated, he added.

“Especially on the Taiwan issue, China has no room for compromise, and the US side should not have any illusions about this.”

Democratically-rule Taiwan has denounced China for its stepped up diplomatic and military pressure to try and force the island into accepting Chinese sovereignty.

  1. China should also not harbour any illusions about Taiwan.

    The US Navy is perfectly capable to strangle China's oil supply, and therefore strangle its economy, far, far, away from China's shores.

    An attack on US soil e.g. Guam or sinking of a US carrier would certainly trigger that.
    3-6 months of unrestricted oil interdiction, and China's wheels would come to a full stop.

    1. Wakakakaka…

      Will see how determine is the Yank in putting his flowery words of defending Taiwan when the chips r down!

      Yankee talk is so so easy.

      & the will to unify the last renegade outpost of China will be completed under president Xi.

      Bet on it, recycling the 台毒 wet dream on uncle Sam's embargo strategy is so so yesterday, old moneyed mfer.

  2. "…only its people can decide its future"


    What a fart!

    Has Taiwan been an independent state since when?

    The people of China have NO SAY in the affairs of Taiwan?

    This bitch is truly in a wet dream of her choice!

  3. Headline: Limited war over Taiwan is desirable, US military experts say

    * US needs to do something because Asia's growth to become world's economic heartland has become unstoppable

    * West fears being left behind if it lets the East continue to rise at its current speed

    * China must be contained, as international media joins the US side in the biggest culture war of all

    " China must be provoked into initiating any escalation of the conflict, so that it will always appear the aggressor" writes defense journalist Aris Roussinos, summarizing the Colby strategy.
