Speaking during the meeting, the Chinese ambassador hailed Iran’s support for China in the face of the US intervention in China’s territorial integrity in the form of a visit to Taiwan Island by Speaker of the US House of Representative Nancy Pelosi.
The Iranian side, for his part, said that if the US interventionist measures are not responded strongly, they will take even higher steps.
Iran-China Friendship Association issued a statement earlier in August which condemned a visit to the Taiwan Island by Nancy Pelosi as a clear violation of China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
The statement said that Pelosi’s visit is a norm-breaking, crisis-creating action with the aim of putting pressure on China and consolidating American hegemony in the East Asia and Pacific region.
It added that Washington uses the Taiwanese issue as a tool for crisis creation in the region.
In line with the principled policies of the Islamic Republic of Iran, the Iran-China Friendship Association supports the one-China policy and Beijing’s stands in the face of the Taiwanese issue, the statement said.
