China protests deployment of US soldiers to guard Washington’s ’embassy’ in Taiwan


Beijing has warned the US against stationing service personnel at a de-facto American embassy in Taipei, after the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) admitted to having a detachment of armed US guard on-site for over a decade. “The US sending military personnel to Taiwan under whatever pretext constitutes a violation of the one-China principle,” a Foreign Ministry spokesperson said Thursday, urging the US to correct its “wrongdoing” to avoid “serious damage” to bilateral ties. While rumors of American Marines being posted in Taipei have circulated for a while, the institute has never acknowledged their presence, until Wednesday.
