BEIJING (REUTERS) – China is resolutely opposed to the joint statement issued by the United States and Japan following talks between the two countries’ leaders, China’s embassy in the US said in a statement on Saturday (April 17).
Taiwan, Hong Kong and Xinjiang are China’s internal affairs and should not be interfered with, it said, adding that the talks had gone beyond the scope of normal bilateral relations, harming third-party interests and threatening peace and stability in the region.
The joint statement was the first time the US and Japan’s top leaders have explicitly mentioned Taiwan in their joint statements since 1969.
