On April 7, 2022, when having a phone conversation with French President's Diplomatic Counselor Emmanuel Bonne, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi made clear China's solemn position on media reports that U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi would visit Taiwan.
Wang Yi pointed out, the current international situation is increasingly turbulent. On the Ukraine issue, the United States stressed that the sovereignty and territorial integrity of a country should be respected; but on the Taiwan question, it openly tramples on the red line of the one-China principle. This is a blatant double standard. If the U.S. House Speaker, a political leader of the United States, deliberately visits Taiwan, it would be a malicious provocation against China's sovereignty and gross interference in China's internal affairs, and would send an extremely dangerous political signal to the outside world. If the U.S. side insists on having its own way, China will surely make a firm response and all the consequences will be borne by the U.S. side.
