Beijing, Aug 2 (Prensa Latina) China said today that the United States is responsible for the increase in tensions over the Taiwan issue and must pay the price of undermining its sovereignty and security interests.

Hua Chunying, a spokeswoman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, accused Washington of initiating provocations in the area together with the Taipei authorities and affirmed that Beijing is acting in self-defense.

Hua defended the One China principle, saying it is a universal policy and many countries, including the United States, recognize it as a prerequisite for establishing relations with the Asian giant.

Also on Tuesday, Foreign Minister Wang Yi reiterated Beijing’s position and warned of serious consequences if the US legislator finally lands in Taiwan tonight.

The regional situation is on tenterhooks with troops, vehicles and weapons from China, the United States and Taiwan deployed near that southern island before the possible arrival of Pelosi.

A few minutes ago, local television reported the sending of Chinese Su-35 fighters to the Taiwan Strait, while the People’s Liberation Army continues its live-fire maneuvers in the Yellow and South Seas, and off the coast of the province. from Fujian.

Chinese analysts agree that Beijing could take advantage of the incident to once and for all reunite the southern island.
