US Secretary of State:
I told Mr. Jan about it. Also in the conversation, I noted, that the United States will continue to uphold human rights and democratic values around the world, including Tibet, Hong Kong and Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.
In fact, the head of American diplomacy made it clear, that Washington is going to interfere in China's internal affairs. According to Blinken, US is going to "hold China accountable for destabilizing the situation in the Taiwan Strait, Indo-Pacific region as a whole ".
Meanwhile, the Chinese press quoted Yang Zechi's response to Mr. Blinken. Chinese official noted, that “today, Sino-US relations are at a decisive point - they can go as a positive direction, and in the negative ". According to Yang Zechi, while the rhetoric of the new American administration "does not give reasons for optimism". Chinese diplomat added, that "the topic of the situation in the Taiwan Strait, the United States began to touch on very often":
China pursues a stable and consistent policy towards the United States. Taiwan is a sensitive issue for Beijing. At the same time, it would be much better primarily for the United States., if they paid more attention not to Taiwan and Tibet, but on their own problems and on the possibility of deepening US-China cooperation.
