At the regular press conference of the China Ministry of Foreign Affairs this afternoon (31st), a reporter asked the spokesman about the American destroyers McCain and Curtis Wilbur sailing across the Taiwan Strait in the early morning of the 31st.
Foreign China Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said that the spokesman of the China Ministry of National Defense has responded to this, and China pays close attention to and keeps abreast of the situation of American warships crossing the Taiwan Strait. Recently, the U.S. ship has repeatedly shown off its force, provoked and disrupted the situation in the Taiwan Strait, sent the wrong signal to the “Taiwan independence” forces, which seriously endangered the peace and stability of the Taiwan Strait region. We express our firm opposition to this.
Wang Wenbin stressed that China will continue to maintain a high level of vigilance at all times, respond to all threats and provocations at any time, and resolutely safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity. We urge the United States to play a constructive role in regional peace and stability, not the other way around.
