CHINA has threatened “heavy price” against the United States if it attempts to support Taiwan’s independence efforts.
The warning came as a five-member delegation headed by former U.S. chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mike Mullen arrived the Taipei capital city amid fears of China’s invasion of Taiwan.
The U.S defence delegates were received by Taiwan’s Foreign Minister Joseph Wu.
Chinese Foreign Ministry via its spokesman Wang Wenbin stated “Such moves will only accelerate the demise of the Taiwan independence forces,”
“The U.S. will also pay a heavy price for its adventurist act.”
“The Chinese people are firmly determined to defend national sovereignty and territorial integrity,”
“The attempt by the U.S. to show support to Taiwan will be in vain no matter who is sent. China urges the U.S. to abide by the one-China principle,” he said.
China has increased military preparations, sending hundreds of its air force jets into Taiwan’s Air Defence Zone.■
