China Denies US Allegations of Political Interference in Taiwan

BEIJING – China denied on Monday allegations made by the United States of politically interfering in Taiwan, after Washington accused Beijing of pressuring countries to cut diplomatic ties with the island nation.

Over the past two years, Taiwan has lost a series of allies as Panama, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador and Sao Tome and Principe.

China’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson, Lu Kang, told a press conference that the allegations made by US were false, pointing out that 40 years ago the US had agreed to establish diplomatic ties with Beijing under the One-China Principle.

China considers Taiwan a breakaway territory and does not recognise its sovereignty.

Lu emphasized that groups in favor of Taiwan’s independence and its separatism are the greatest threat to the region’s stability and peace.

US Vice President, Mike Pence, alleged earlier this month that China had convinced the three Latin American countries of breaking their ties with Taipei.

In a speech at the US think tank, Hudon Institute, Pence said, “America will always believe that Taiwan’s embrace of democracy shows a better path for all the Chinese people.”

The exchange is the latest spat between the US and China, who have been embroiled in an escalating trade dispute since July.
