Chinese Foreign Minister Qin Gang smashed out on Tuesday at the United States over deteriorating bilateral relations and Washington’s support for Taiwan, in his first news conference since taking office.
On the sidelines of China’s annual grand gathering so-called ‘rubber-band legislature’ held in Beijing, Qin told journalists that, “Washington’s China policy has “entirely deviated from the rational and soundtrack,”.
The Chinese Foreign Minister further added that Washington wants to suppress China in all aspects and get the two countries locked in a zero-sum game. “If the United States does not slow down the wrong path it is following, surely, there will be conflict and confrontations,” he said. Also, Qin pointed out that such reckless decisions will not only tarnish the mutual relation between the two countries but will also put the future of the entire humanity at risk.
In response to the US claims that COVID-19, first detected in the central Chinese city of Wuhan in late 2019, the Chinese Foreign Ministry accused Washington of politicizing the issue in an attempt to discredit China.
Furthermore, the United States has repeatedly warned China of the possible supply of arms to Russia’s struggle in the Ukraine war in the recent past. Also, the US and its Western allies have criticized China for not condemning Ukraine’s invasion by Russia.
Contrary to the allegations, China has rejected the claims of supplying weapons to Russia and has corrected that the relationship between Beijing and Moscow is beyond the limit, and would not be affected by such baseless propaganda.
The relationship between Beijing and Washington has soured in recent months. America has been supporting Taiwan to become a fully independent state, with no influence from China is a clear interference in the internal matters of Taiwan and China.
