Chinese Defence Minister vows to never give an ‘inch’ of Taiwan, South China Sea

Chinese Defence Minister Wei Fenghe Thursday during the opening of the Xiangshan Forum in Beijing remarked that China would never give ‘an inch’ of its territory, referring to Taiwan and the disputed waters of the South China Sea, AP reported.

“If someone tries to separate Taiwan from China, the Chinese armed forces will take action at any price,” Wei warned.

China’s military ties with the United States are important and sensitive, he said, adding Taiwan is a “core” interest and Beijing opposes displays of strength by “outside forces” in the South China Sea.
