Newsline: Chinese ambassador warns British lawmakers against Taiwan visit

China’s UK ambassador Zheng Zeguang vowed “severe consequences” if British lawmakers visit Taiwan, the Guardian https://bit.ly/3JoQlOK reported. (https://news.yahoo.com/chinas-uk-ambassador-warns-british-212510460.html) Visits would interfere in China’s internal affairs and would lead to severe consequences in China-UK relations, Zheng said at a news conference in London, the report said. “We call on the UK side to abide by the Sino-UK joint communique and not to underestimate the extreme sensitivity of the Taiwan issue, and not to follow the U.S.’s footsteps,” the Guardian quoted Zheng as saying. Zheng’s comments came after the Guardian reported on Monday that Britain’s House of Commons’ Foreign Affairs Committee is planning a visit to Taiwan probably in November or early December this year.
