Iran criticizes visit of US official to Taiwan

Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman described US House Speaker’s visit to Taiwan as “provocative behaviors” and called the move an interference in the internal affairs of the People’s Republic of China and a violation of that country’s territorial integrity.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran views respect to the territorial integrity of countries as the basis of its foreign policy, and support for the one-China policy in this framework is unquestionable,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kan’ani said.

Pelosi’s plane landed at Songshan airport in Taipei at about 10.45 pm local time on Tuesday. She was greeted by Taiwan’s foreign minister, Joseph Wu, and the US representative in Taiwan, Sandra Oudkirk.

Kan’ani said respect for the territorial integrity of countries is among the basic principles of the United Nations to the extent that Article 2 of the UN Charter obliges all UN members to avoid behaviors that would undermine the territorial integrity and political independence of other countries.

The Foreign Ministry spokesman added the “recent provocative behaviors” of American officials in the internal affairs of the Democratic Republic of China and “violation of its territorial integrity” is an example of the US interference in different regions and countries across the world and such a policy has “brought nothing except instability and escalation of tensions.”

He went on to say that unilateralism and breach of international rules and commitments have become a habit in US foreign policy.

The withdrawal of the US from multilateral agreements, including the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and the imposition of inhumane and illegal sanctions against the Iranian nation are concrete examples that the U.S. is not committed to its obligations.
