Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi has warned that the United States will have to pay a heavy price for its actions in dealing with Taiwan. The warning came amid a heated exchange between China and the United States.
Yang Yi made the remarks in an interview with China’s state television channel CCTV and Xinhua on Thursday, Reuters reported. At the time, he warned Washington that intervening in Taiwan could put the United States in a dangerous position.
Wang Yi said the United States was putting Taiwan at “grave risk” by inciting pro-independence forces. And the United States will have to pay a high price for doing this.
The Chinese Foreign Minister said that there is no other way open for Taiwan except to integrate with Chinese territory.
Tensions are rising between China and the United States over the Taiwan issue. Taiwan is one of the issues the United States is pushing for in China. The United States has also banned the import of goods from China’s Xinjiang region, citing the Uyghur issue.
China considers Taiwan part of itself. The country has said at various times that it will take control of the territory if necessary. And Taiwan claims to be an independent country. They are ready to do anything to protect this freedom and democratic practice.
Legislative votes in five Indian states, including Uttar Pradesh, are not far behind. Voting will be on time, according to all the rules. This was stated by the country’s Chief Election Commissioner Sushil Chandra on Thursday after a three-day visit to Uttar Pradesh. His announcement is believed to have put an end to vote-related speculation.
Speaking at a press conference in Lucknow, the capital of Uttar Pradesh, on Thursday, India’s chief election commissioner said no party had voted to postpone the polls. Everyone wants the vote to be taken at the specified time. However, it should not follow the rules.
Justice Shekhar Yadav of the Allahabad High Court said during a recent hearing that the incidence of the new type of covid is increasing. In this situation, the Uttar Pradesh vote should be postponed. Following the High Court’s opinion, the country’s Election Commission held a meeting with Central Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan. The commission inquired from the government about the state of Amicron, how dangerous the outbreak of Kovid is, how the government is ready to deal with it and how it is preparing for the future. The three-member Election Commission then went to Lucknow on a three-day visit on Tuesday.
At a press conference on the last day of the visit, Chief Election Commissioner Sushil Chandra, two Election Commissioners Rajiv Kumar and Anup Chandra Pandey said the state’s final voter list would be released on January 5. They said the BJP, Samajwadi Party, Congress, Bahujan Samaj Party, Rashtriya Lok Dal and others all voted in favor of holding the polls on time. As per precautionary measures, 11,000 additional booths will be set up in the state. Voting time will also be extended by one hour. In addition, voters over the age of 60 can vote at home. As a result, there will be no rush in the booths on the polling day. Social distance can also be accepted.
According to the Chief Election Commissioner, 50 per cent of the people in Uttar Pradesh have received two doses of vaccine. Only four people in the state have been infected with ammonia. The commission will still take all kinds of precautions. Only those who have been vaccinated will be appointed as poll workers. He said the turnout in Uttar Pradesh was declining. That’s a thought. The turnout in the 2016 assembly elections was 61 percent. In 2019, it was reduced to 59 percent in the Lok Sabha.
