BEIJING: China has said that US was an “unprovoked provocateur and creator of crisis.”  According to a Chinese news agency Criticizing the recent visit of Speaker of the United States House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan, a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson said on Friday that the “context and the events that led to the tensions in the Taiwan Strait are crystal-clear. The US is the unprovoked provocateur and creator of the crisis.”

Spokesperson Hua Chunying made the remarks at a daily press briefing. “The current situation is entirely caused by Speaker Pelosi and other US politicians,” Hua said.

Hua said the Taiwan question is not about democracy, but a major issue of principle about China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

“If an American state seeks to split itself from the US and claims to be an independent country and a foreign country provides weapons and political support to this state, will the government and people of the US  allow this to happen?” Hua asked.

The visit of Pelosi to Taiwan is a serious violation of the one-China principle, she said. “It seriously tramples on basic norms in international relations. It also seriously undermines China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. China has done everything diplomatically possible,” said Hua.

The spokesperson pointed out that China has acted in legitimate self-defense only after the U.S. made this egregious provocation. China’s countermeasures are necessary as a warning to the provocateurs and as a step to uphold the country’s sovereignty and security.
