Damascus, SANA- Dr. Bouthaina Shaaban, Special Adviser at the Presidency of the Republic, has affirmed that China has right to take all measures to defend its sovereignty and territorial integrity.
Shaaban’s remarks came in an exclusive interview with Xinhua News Agency yesterday.
Shaaban said “The purpose of US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to the Chinese region of Taiwan is media and propaganda in order to show that the United States is still the superpower in the world and that it is able to do whatever it pleases.”
Dr. Shaaban added that the results of what China took as steps in response to Pelosi’s visit were the opposite of what some American politicians wanted, as the military maneuvers that it conducted were very important and through them it demonstrated its seriousness by taking all steps to defend its sovereignty and territorial integrity and that it is capable of doing so.
According to Dr. Shaaban, that the main purpose of the United States in all its relations is to try to show that it is the only dominant pole while China wants a multipolar world and addresses the world in the language of cooperation rather than rather than the language of dominance adopted by the West.
Dr. Shaaban stressed that the One-China principle is internationally recognized and is in the interest of all Chinese people.
