China says Japan's Taiwan stance justifies the 'wrongdoers'


Japanese officials' recent statements on the current tensions in the Taiwan Strait were an attempt to justify the "wrongdoers", Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said on Friday during a regular briefing.

The harsh remarks from Beijing come after foreign ministers of G7 nations - including Japan - called on China on Wednesday to resolve tension around the Taiwan Strait in a peaceful manner, prompting China to cancel a planned meeting between Foreign Minister Wang Yi and his Japanese counterpart on the sidelines of ASEAN events in Cambodia.

Respect One China... and One Taiwan.

Taiwan never claims territory on the continent.

Chinese people fail to see that what we hate is not China or it's people, it's the CCP, and they also fail to see that they are biggest losers of CCP growing stronger. As long as China is ruled by a dictator it's not your country it's the CCPs country. They might have been good to you in the past and now, but as they grow stronger and more confident they will not have the same need to make you happy.

I also think many western people fail to see why so many Chinese can still be so proud of their current country and why they are not out protesting on the streets etc. The truth is that most Chinese alive today has lived more free and peaceful lives than most Americans for example, If you are not some sort of minority or try hard to look for the information that the CCP blocks, you won't feel that you are living in a dictatorship. The CCP did until recently let it's people live as they wanted, and the youth in the cities lived and enjoyed the same things as people in democratic countries did. But as the CCP has grown stronger and more confident they have started to crack down on the things they don't like, games, international entertainment, who can be rich etc. Soon they will probably go after gays and so on. I think if anyone needs to be afraid of what is happening it's the Chinese themselves, the CCP growing stronger is not a positive thing for you.

China has shown the world it has no real way forward but to use force to get what it wants.

The response has been to resort to a military show of force. That is the only arrow it has to use. Fire missiles to show displeasure. Using the North Korean playbook that has consistently failed Kim, and now fails Jinping.

A new age of conquest has begun with Russia invading Ukraine to make it part of Russia, and Taiwan is firmly in China's sights for the same purpose, to expand Chinese rule.

China is unable to do anything that would encourage Taiwan to want to be under CCP rule.

There is nothing in it for Taiwan but much less freedom, much more persecution and a future that is ruled not by your own wants and needs but by CCP wants and needs and decree's. The old men ruling China know nothing having lived lives without freedom themselves.

China's wrongdoers continue to be oblivious to the fact it is they who are in the wrong. Will they never learn.

china, unlike NATO members has never invaded sovereign nations are you feeling rodney?

China has invaded virtually all nations of this planet in claiming international waters as their own and carrying out military activities on them.

Formally, they invaded Vietnam in 79, as some one else has posted. They invaded the Philippines and got told not to by an international court. They invaded India because they cross an agreed line.

Even when they are no where near their country they cross border to stir up conflicts like in Africa.

China = tower of evil.

Brain damaged, deranged, psychologically compromised. The closer you are to CCP the more you enter their alternate reality and the more damaged you become. For the sake of Chinese youths, I hope the CCP is finished sooner rather than later.

To think in this day and age with communication becoming ever more pervasive through ever more channels that can't be stiffled by totalitarianism, and have people like Wang Yi and Hua Chunying shamelessly fronting cameras and spew forth propaganda and lies without even blinking an eyelid is proof they are damaged.

John Lee of Hong Kong congratulating himself for winning an election of one candidate - very damaged. Imagine telling your grand kids this.

Carrie Lam - blaming youths for her own incompetence and banning masks - damaged.

China and Russia, just 2 big bullies, and nothing more. But if unchecked, the bullies are becoming more and more aggressive. The only speak the violence language and usually they are not one of the brightest, nor the wisest of all. China and Russia are the perfect example.

Since 2016 the largest superpower in the world has been led by a comical, thundering ignoramus followed by a man in clear mental decline. My home country was led by Boris Johnson. Japan is almost invariably led by empty suits reciting the writings of bureaucrats.

The western powers need to up their game in terms of leadership. The CCP are ugly and despotic but not stupid.

China is ruled by the Communist Party of China. The leader is Xi and therefore the president. No none member can become the president.

Personally, I'd rather be more accurate and call them Fascists.

So? Call them Fascist China. That's exactly what they are.

Everyone should do it. Maybe it'll catch on.

We call PRC "Communist China" because that's what they call themselves. Best get over it.

Not very perceptive Ossan.

Suppose the LDP is liberal and democratic and Kim's North Korea is a Democratic People's Republic.

Never say never China did attack Vietnam during the Sino-Vietnamese War. And they also support Russia trying invade the Ukraine.

No your wrong ! !

China's largest trading partners aren't worried in the least.

According to World Export.Com the top trading partners with China are.

The United States, followed by the the EU.

United States: US$521 billion (17.2% of China’s total exports)

Hong Kong: $313.1 billion (10.3%)

Japan: $151.3 billion (5%)

South Korea: $135.1 billion (4.5%)

Vietnam: $125.8 billion (4.2%)

Germany: $103 billion (3.4%)

Netherlands: $91.6 billion (3%)

India: $87.9 billion (2.9%)

United Kingdom: $78.8 billion (2.6%)

Taiwan: $70.8 billion (2.3%)

No one is saying who is the greatest trading partner, however a lot of Western companies are fleeing China (I wonder why).

Just shut your bitter mouths, Communist China.

Funny how the centerpiece of the manufacturing base of the global capitalist market economy that jails socialist students can still be called "communist". It is just lazy and outdated.

The biggest babies cry the longest and loudest. That applies both to the CCP and the members of the CCP’s 50-cent party who amuse us with their temper tantrum posts.

Just shut your bitter mouths, Communist China. The entire world stopped listening to Chinese long ago.

Still firing rounds into the ocean floor as "retaliation"? That'll really scare Japan, Taiwan and the USA...NOT!

China want to flex its muscles and show them off so badly for the world to see.

It’s like North Korea on steroids.

Special Administrative Region of Hong Kong.

The Uighur Muslim internment camps.

The Indian border dispute.

Next Taiwan.

Wake up world. This evil nation is not going to stop.

China govt: when we take back Taiwan, we'll re-educate them.

16 ( +16 / -0 )

Usual Chinese playbook, behave disgracefully then blame everyone else for it and throw a childish tantrum.

Their own excessive, dangerous and hysterical over reaction is the root cause of the international criticism but they ignore that so as to take umbrage and false self righteous indignation. Unprofessional and childish.

China's going nuts. Lashing out at the world.

No your wrong ! !

China's largest trading partners aren't worried in the least.

Hence the new China world bank !

You probably are so full of yourself you think the USA is the greatest trading partner.

Sorry to burst your bubble !

-25 ( +4 / -29 )

Sorry China, but you are the "wrongdoer" here. All of your trading partners that you rely on are telling you not to invade Taiwan. Do the right thing and listen, instead of trying to justify your wrongdoing.

17 ( +21 / -4 )

CCP go away.

CCP, please dissolve and leave people in foreign lands at peace.
