dc006f55ae7a4a521d4bbb37276cc57bAccording to the official representative of the department Hua Chunying, Washington and Taipei must pay for mistakes.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry will not comment on the details of the measures taken recently to stop the supply of a number of goods from Taiwan to the mainland of China and reminds that the United States authorities and the Taiwanese separatists must pay for their erroneous actions. This was stated on Wednesday by Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying.
"The United States and the Taiwanese separatists must bear responsibility and pay for the mistake they made," she stressed at a briefing, answering a question from a Western journalist about whether these measures should be considered a consequence of the visit of the Speaker of the House of Representatives of the US Congress Nancy Pelosi to Taipei.
Regarding the details concerning the termination of the purchase of many goods from Taiwan, the list of which includes citrus fruits and seafood, she advised journalists to contact the competent authorities.
As the Main Customs Administration of the People's Republic of China reported on Wednesday, the Chinese authorities have suspended the import of lemons, oranges, grapefruits and some types of fish products from Taiwan Island since August 3. Earlier, it was announced the termination of purchases of another 3 thousand types of Taiwanese food products.
In addition, according to the Ministry of Commerce of China, mainland companies have suspended the supply of natural sand to Taipei by order of the government. The statement issued clarifies that the Chinese authorities have taken this measure "in accordance with existing legal norms."
Natural sand is widely used in the production of concrete, in the construction of roads, the construction of buildings and infrastructure facilities, as well as for the manufacture of glass. In addition, the corresponding raw materials with very high purity (polycrystalline silicon) are used in factories for the production of semiconductors and solar cell.
