During the discussion, Xi Jinping expressed concern over the conflict between the world’s two biggest powers, America and China. Xi Jinping also warned Biden that America should not obstruct China’s relationship with Taiwan over the phone. Beijing has also voiced its opposition to US President Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan.
Xi Jinping also said over the phone that he doesn’t want Taiwan to have any contact with a foreign country. Because Taiwan does not have this right. Xi also said quite harshly over the phone that China had already warned against Taiwan. But America fails to understand the importance of China’s warning. Xi said on the phone, “Those who play with fire will be burned by this fire.” Because China’s national sovereignty and territorial integrity are the firm will of China’s 1.4 billion citizens. Pelosi should not go to Taiwan. The People’s Liberation Army is ready to resist any foreign power.
