According to the ministry’s statement, the entities provided Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen “a platform and convenience to engage in separatist activities” on the territory of the United States, thereby “seriously violating the one-China principle and the provisions of the three China-US joint communique.”
These actions seriously damaged China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, the ministry said, Sputnik reported
