NEW DELHI: Chinese Embassy in India made a solemn statement Friday lodging strong representation and firm opposition against an Indian media interview advocating “Taiwan independence.”
“It seriously violated One-China principle and provoked China’s bottom line disregarding long-standing position of the Indian government,” spokesman of Chinese Embassy in India, Counselor Ji Rong, said in the statement.
Referring to certain Indian TV’s interview with the head of the Taiwan authorities’ foreign relations department Jaushieh Joseph Wu openly advocating “Taiwan independence,” Ji pointed out that there is but one China in the world and the government of the People’s Republic of China is the sole legitimate government representing the whole of China, and Taiwan is an inalienable part of China.
Ji said these facts are recognized by a United Nations resolution and constitute the universal consensus of the international community, and no matter how the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) authorities in Taiwan and separatist forces distort facts and advocate “Taiwan independence,” they cannot change the historical and legal facts that Taiwan is a part of China.
