China hits back after South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol says Taiwan is a ‘global issue’

The Chinese foreign ministry rejected suggestions from the South Korean president that both Taiwan and North Korea are global issues, and called on Seoul to act with caution over the island.

The nature of the Korean peninsula issue and the Taiwan issue were “completely different and not comparable at all, and this is a well-known fact”, ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said on Thursday, adding that North and South Korea were sovereign states that were both members of the United Nations.
