China has hit back at the visit of UK Trade Minister Greg Hands to Taiwan. China said that Britain is violating the One China policy. He said that Britain had made its commitment to the One China policy, now it is backing out of it. China said Britain was ignoring Beijing’s warnings not to make official contact with Taipei. Significantly, British Trade Minister Greg Hands has arrived in Taipei on Monday on a two-day visit.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said in Beijing on Monday that there is only one China in the world and that Taiwan is an inseparable part of China’s territory. China rejects any country’s diplomatic relations or any official talks with Taiwan. The One China principle is the political basis of UK-China relations.

Zhao said Britain should respect China’s position and stop official talks with Taiwan. At the same time, Taiwan’s independent forces should stop sending false signals. He also warned Taiwan’s ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), headed by Taiwanese President Tsai-Ing-wen.

This two-day visit of British Trade Minister Greg Hands holds great importance not only from an economic point of view but also politically. The visit assumes significance as it is the first visit by a high-level British official to Taiwan. At the same time, last month, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak took office amid reports of being a fanatic against China.

Significantly, after the visit of US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan, the UK minister’s visit to Taiwan is taking place. Speaker of the House of Representatives, the lower house of the US Parliament, Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan last August. She was the first top American leader in 25 years to reach Taiwan despite heavy opposition from China. Analysts then said that Pelosi’s visit, which rejected military advice, had drawn the crisis between the US and China closer.

Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan was the result of China’s unprecedented large-scale military exercises in the Taiwan Strait. China had threatened not only Taiwan but also the US of dire consequences.

Let us tell you that China claims Taiwan as its share. The integration of Taiwan with China is part of Chinese President Xi Jinping’s stated objective. Xi Jinping was elected last month as the head of China’s ruling Communist Party for a record third term.
