Hope New Delhi Will Support ‘One China’ Policy: Chinese Ambassador To Taiwan

Beijing expects that New Delhi will resume to keep the ‘One China principle and comprehend the “mean political choice” after United States Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s trip to Taiwan, Chinese envoy to India Sun Weidong spoke on Wednesday, August 3.

In a dialogue with the Times of India, the Chinese ambassador explicitly named New Delhi to stay by the ‘One China policy behind Nancy Pelosi’s holiday, the highest-level visit by a United States administrator to Taiwan since 1997.

“It is wished that New Delhi can observe the one-China direction, get the cruel political intention after Pelosi’s stop and the severe hurts of the ‘Taiwan sovereignty’ separatist squad,” Sun expressed in the discussion on Thursday, August 4.

He argued that the ‘One China principle is an “omnipresent peace of the international community” and the basis of Beijing’s bilateral links with other nations, including India. “It is the soul of China’s claims and a red line and lowest line that cannot be scratched. India was among the first nations to acknowledge that there is one China,” he expressed.

The Chinese diplomat counted that he “expected that the Indian flank can comprehend and help Beijing’s actions to protect its independence, safety and product claims, and work jointly with the Chinese flank to encourage a fit and stable expansion of Beijing-India ties.”

Beneath the ‘One China approach, a government does not acknowledge Taiwan, created by the fleeing superpatriots in 1949, as a ruler, separate entity but only accepts the People’s Republic of China made by the Communist Party of China.

The United States helps the ‘One China policy but claims it could support Taiwan during a military invasion.

In the run-up to Pelosi’s stay, Beijing had commented that it would take “substantial countermeasures to protect its independence and territorial integrity”. The USA comforted that the trip did not indicate any difference in its guideline and warned that Beijing should not depend on Pelosi’s journey into “trouble”.

India seems to have been quiet on the subject. So far, it contains not allocated any information helping Beijing as Moscow, Islamabad, and Tehran did.

Since its freedom, New Delhi has attached to the ‘One China policy and does not have ceremonial, diplomatic links with Taiwan. Yet, Taiwan and India have business headquarters in each other’s capitals, which operate as a de-facto embassy.

The ‘One China policy had forever been part of common comments. However, in 2010, New Delhi quit counting it to the bilateral records after Beijing started giving clasped access to citizens of Arunachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir.

When pressures between New Delhi and Beijing started over the eastern Ladakh stand-off, it showed buzzes from different quarters in the Indian media to change New Delhi’s ‘One China policy, resulting in manifestations of respect from the Chinese side.

Taiwan’s national day also got unique in India when a ruling party member installed celebratory signs and flags beyond the Chinese embassy in October 2020.

In the daytime, the Chinese embassy had alerted the Indian media to bypass operating periods that would transgress the ‘One China policy, which had shown the Ministry of External Affairs to argue that the “free” Indian media would say, “as it catches reasonable”.
