The Chinese Defense Ministry has hit out at the US, deploring its “political show” after three American senators visited Taiwan’s capital, Taipei on a military transport plane for a three-hour trip on Sunday.
Speaking on Tuesday, ministry spokesman Wu Qian slammed the US for its political manipulation and attempts to undermine the one-China principle through its diplomatic engagements with Taiwan.
The US senators visited Taiwan by military plane, using the Taiwan issue to engage in a ‘political show’, challenging the one-China principle and trying to achieve the so-called goal of ‘using Taiwan to control China.’
Referencing the visit of three US senators to Taipei on a military plane on Sunday, Wu stated: “This is a vile political provocation. We firmly oppose this.”
