The Chinese Foreign Ministry summoned the ambassadors of European countries to protest after criticism of the military exercises around Taiwan from the G7 and the European Union. This was reported by the Associated Press.
Chinese Deputy Foreign Minister Dan Li called such statements “unreasonable interference” in the internal affairs of China. The agency did not specify the ambassadors of which EU countries were called.
Deng Li said that China will prevent the split of the country at any cost and use all means to achieve this.
“The visit of Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan is a blatant political manipulation. This is a violation of China's sovereignty and territorial integrity,” the Deputy Foreign Minister continued.
According to him, China's response to the “collusion and provocation” of the US and Taiwan is quite natural and appropriate.
