BEIJING, Aug. 29 (DPA/EP) –

The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs has condemned this Monday the “provocation” that has led to the United States sending two warships to the Taiwan Strait, a maneuver, it has said, that seeks to “sabotage the peace and stability of the region”.

The spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Zhao Lijian, has asked the United States at a press conference to limit itself to respecting the “one China” policy, whose only legitimate government is that of Beijing.

This Sunday two warships of the United States Navy have sailed through the Taiwan Strait, which has provoked criticism from China, which in recent weeks has also rejected the already recurrent official visits of US congressmen to an island that it considers hers.

Among them was the highly commented one by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, who responded from China with the launching for four days of a series of military exercises, which included the launch of ballistic missiles, in six areas that surround the island.

Shortly after this navigation operation was announced, the Taiwanese Ministry of Defense confirmed a new approach of Chinese Army warships and combat aircraft to its maritime and air security zone, as has been customary in recent years. months.
