Wrong path on Taiwan will make US pay price - China

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said on Tuesday that the "wrong path" the United States is taking on Taiwan will cause irreversible consequences for bilateral relations and will make Washington pay a heavy price in the end.

"The US has made every effort to play with words on the one-China principle," Wang Wenbin told reporters and stressed that the White House "violated its commitments on the Taiwan issue." The Beijing official underlined that "there is only one China in the world, Taiwan is a part of China, and the government of the People's Republic of China is the only legitimate government representing the whole of China."

US President Joe Biden said earlier in the day that Washington's policy toward Taiwan has not changed, but did not elaborate further on his comments from yesterday.
