    Wang Yi Meets with US Secretary of State Blinken

    Published on

    New York, September 23 On September 23, 2022 local time, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi met with US Secretary of State Blinken at the residence of the Permanent Mission of China to the United Nations.

    Wang Yi said that the current Sino-US relationship has suffered a serious impact, and the US side needs to learn from it. China-US relations are at a critical juncture, and it is urgent for both sides to establish a correct way for the two major countries to get along with each other in a responsible attitude towards the world, history, and the two peoples, so as to promote the stability of bilateral relations.

    Wang Yi comprehensively expounded China‘s solemn position on the recent wrongful actions of the US on the Taiwan issue. Emphasizing that the Taiwan issue is the core of China‘s core interests, and it is as heavy as Mount Tai in the hearts of the Chinese people. Safeguarding national sovereignty and territorial integrity is our mission, never ambiguous. The US has a clear political commitment to China on the Taiwan issue. There have been three Sino-US joint communiqués far away, and recently the current US administration has repeatedly expressed its disapproval of “Taiwan independence”. However, the actions of the United States run counter to this. They attempt to undermine China‘s sovereignty and territorial integrity, obstruct China‘s peaceful reunification, engage in the so-called “Taiwan to control China“, and even openly claim to help defend Taiwan, sending a very wrong and dangerous signal. . The US should return to the three Sino-US joint communiqués and the one-China principle as it is, reiterate the one-China policy, and clearly express its opposition to all kinds of “Taiwan independence” separatist activities.

    Wang Yi stressed that the Taiwan issue is China‘s internal affair, and the US has no right to interfere. China‘s position on resolving the Taiwan issue is consistent and clear, and will continue to adhere to the basic policy of “peaceful reunification and one country, two systems”. A peaceful settlement is incompatible with the “Taiwan independence” split. The more rampant the “Taiwan independence” activities are, the less likely a peaceful solution will be. To truly maintain peace across the Taiwan Strait, we must clearly oppose and stop any “Taiwan independence” behavior.

    Wang Yi emphasized that China and the United States have both common interests and profound differences, which will not change. From the first day of contact, the two sides knew that they were dealing with countries with different systems. This did not prevent the two sides from cooperating based on common interests, nor should it be a reason for confrontation between China and the United States. It is hoped that the US will correct its perception of China, reflect on and change its China policy with containment and suppression as the main line, and stop trying to deal with the Chinese with its position of strength, stop thinking about hindering China‘s development, and stop unilaterally bullying. It is necessary to create a favorable atmosphere for the resumption of normal exchanges between the two sides, and to push China-US relations back to a healthy and stable development track.

    Blinken said that U.S.-China relations are currently in a difficult period, and it is in the interests of both sides to bring bilateral relations back to a stable track. The two countries have successfully managed differences in the past, and the US side is willing to have candid communication and dialogue with the Chinese side to avoid misunderstandings and misjudgments and find a way forward. Blinken reiterated that the US does not seek a “new Cold War”, the one-China policy has not changed, and it does not support “Taiwan independence”.

    The two sides also exchanged views on the situation in Ukraine.

    Both sides considered the meeting to be candid, constructive and important, and agreed to continue to maintain communication.
