Newsline: Chinese Diplomat Warns U.S. Of ‘Dangerous Situation’

China has warned the U.S. of a “dangerous situation” if it continues to support Taiwan. Beijing also added that it “will do as we said” to protect the country’s sovereignty and security interests. Beijing’s top diplomat Yang Jiechi made the remark during a phone conversation with U.S. national security adviser Jake Sullivan on Wednesday. “The recent actions taken by the U.S. on Taiwan-related matters have been a huge contrast from their pronouncements. If the U.S. continues to play the Taiwan card and head further on the wrong path, this will certainly lead to dangerous situations,” Yang said, according to South China Morning Post. Yang said Washington has been “adopting wrongful narratives and actions” that harmed China’s interests. “China has been making stern and powerful responses. The U.S. must do what it says for China-US relations to return to a healthy and stable track of development,” Yang said. His statement was published by the Chinese state broadcaster CCTV. “China will be steadfast to take actions that defend its sovereignty and security interests. We will do as we said,” Yang added.

The duo also discussed “Russia’s war against Ukraine and specific issues in U.S.-China relations.”
