China reiterates foreign enterprises' respect for its sovereignty, territorial integrity

Foreign airlines that refer to Taiwan, Hong Kong or Macau as being independent from China could face punishment under a new social credit regulation issued by Beijing late previous year.

A statement by Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang on Sunday said the U.S. comments would not change the fact there was only one China in the world and "Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan regions are an inalienable part of China's territory".

China will stick to the One-China principle when dealing its external relations, Geng said, urging foreign enterprises operating business in China to respect China's sovereignty and territorial integrity, abide by Chinese law, and respect the Chinese peoples' feelings.

"Taiwan is an integral part of China's territory".

"While we seek a mutually beneficial commercial aviation relationship with China, we will consider taking appropriate action if necessary in response to unfair Chinese actions". "The websites of both United and American list airports in Taiwan only as 'Taiwan, ' without reference to China", reported Foreign Policy. "He will stand up for Americans resisting efforts by the Chinese Communist Party to impose Chinese political correctness on American companies and citizens".

China is threatening foreign airlines with a version of the social credit system that is being implemented domestically, where more than seven million Chinese citizens have been deemed "untrustworthy".

The White House's statement, issued by Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, also framed criticism of the Chinese directive in terms of President Donald Trump's campaign against "political correctness in the United States", calling the Chinese statement an example of "efforts by the Chinese Communist Party to impose Chinese political correctness on American companies and citizens".

A report by The Sydney Morning Herald on Monday said Australia's Foreign Minister Julie Bishop had warned Beijing against using threats to pressure Qantas to adopt the Communist Party's political line by referring to Taiwan as part of mainland China rather than a separate country.

In all, almost 40 global airlines have been targeted for running afoul of Beijing's dictates on areas it claims as part of Mainland China's holdings.

The White House's latest statement was released as a high-level U.S. trade delegation, led by U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, wrapped up a visit to China.

"As to this matter, we have deferred it to the US Government since this is a diplomatic issue to be resolved among governments", he said in an email. Chinese companies' websites operate freely and without political interference in the United States.

The US embassy posted on its official Weibo account the Mandarin translation of a White House statement that dismissed China's request to foreign air carriers as "Orwellian nonsense".
