BEIJING – Whatever changes take place in Taiwan, the fact that the region is part of China will not change, and the Chinese government’s opposition to “Taiwan independence” separatism will not change, the Foreign Ministry said in an online statement on Saturday night.
The Taiwan question is China’s internal affair and changes to the situation on the island will not affect the fact that there is only one China in the world, the statement said in response to the result of an election in the region.
The Chinese government’s position of upholding the one-China principle and opposing “two Chinas” and “one China, one Taiwan” will not change, a spokesperson said in the statement.
The one-China principle is the solid anchor for peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait, the spokesperson stressed, adding that the international community’s consensus on upholding and adhering to the principle will not change.
Beijing believes that the international community will continue to adhere to the one-China principle, understand and support the Chinese people’s just cause of opposing “Taiwan independence” separatist activities, and their striving to achieve national reunification, the spokesperson added.
