US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi Clashed over Taiwan During G20 Summit

Blinken’s meeting with Wang was their first in person since a fiery exchange in Alaska in March

According to Daily Mail on October 31th, 2021, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken locked horns with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi over the Taiwan issue at the G20 Summit. Both sides traded warnings and blamed the other side for the escalating tensions over the Taiwan Strait.

In this one-hour meeting, the US Secretary of State made it “crystal clear” that the United States opposes any unilateral move by Beijing to change the status quo around Taiwan, while the Chinese Foreign Minister expressed “China’s solemn concern” over United States’ involvement in Taiwanese affairs that have “damaged China’s legitimate rights and interests.” In addition, both sides also fundamentally disagreed over Taiwan’s future role in the United Nations.  The U.S. side encouraging Taiwan to play a more positive role in the United Nations, while Communist China clamors that “Taiwan has no place” in the international body.

Those heated exchanges came at a time when the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) have been increasing its military exercises around Taiwan, threatening to take control by force. In a recent move last Sunday, according to Taipei (Taiwan News), eight Chinese military aircrafts entered Taiwan’s air defense identification zone. With a looming economic crisis and intensified domestic political struggles, the CCP is contemplating invading Taiwan to shift the focus of attention away from its domestic problems.
