Chinese scientist Kaisheng accused the US of double standards policy due to contacts with Taiwan
Li Kaisheng, deputy director of the Institute of International Affairs of the Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences, accused the US of showing a policy of double standards by raising the level of contacts with Taiwan. His words lead TASS.
Thus, a scholar from China commented on the trip of the Speaker of the House of Representatives of the United States Congress Nancy Pelosi to Taipei.
According to him, on the one hand, Washington claims that it respects the principle of one China, and on the other hand, it increases the level of official visits to Taiwan. “All this reflects the selfishness and arrogance of the US as a hegemonic country and its double standards in foreign policy,” Kaisheng said.
He added that the United States recognized the PRC government as legitimate and committed itself not to develop official contacts with Taipei, but continues to do so and gives the impression that it does not violate international agreements, although this is actually what is happening.
Formerly Pelosi statedthat the US authorities will continue to help Taiwan defend its freedom “in the face of aggression.” The politician said that the American side confirmed the readiness of the Congress to support Taiwan.
The Speaker of the House of Representatives visited the island on 2 August. She spent less than a day in Taiwan before flying to South Korea.
