China: Taiwan not card in international relations

Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Zhao Lijian condemned on Friday the visit of five United States House Representatives to Taiwan and underlined that the island is "an inalienable part of Chinese territory, not a card in international relations."

Lijian stressed that Taiwan is "just a few noises in the process of China's reunification" and that the US cannot "change the firm pattern of 180 countries adhering to the one-China principle," which, on the other hand, Washington "wantonly challenged." The ministry also dismissed the US response to the migrant crisis in Europe, saying that it "pretended to be human rights guardian" but actually "completely ignored" the "serious" violations of "basic human rights of the refugees."

China's comments come in response to the two-day visit five US House Representatives are making to Taiwan on November 25 and 26.
