The resolution, adopted on November 29, calls on the French government to support Taiwan’s participation in international organizations.
“The resolution, which blatantly violates the one-China principle, interferes in China’s internal affairs, is an act of encouragement for the forces advocating ‘Taiwan independence’,” said one. Chinese Embassy spokesperson in an online press release.
“There is only one China in the world, and the government of the People’s Republic of China is the only legal government representing all of China.
Taiwan is an inalienable part of Chinese territory, which is the subject of a global consensus within the international community, ”the spokesperson stressed.
The Taiwan issue is purely China’s internal affairs which brought no external interference and no room for negotiation, the spokesperson said.
In 1971, the 26th session of the United Nations General Assembly adopted Resolution 2758 by an overwhelming majority and restored all the rights of the People’s Republic of China to the world organization.
The resolution resolved once and for all the issue of China’s representation in the UN in political, legal and procedural terms.
On the basis of the one-China principle, the Chinese central government has already made appropriate arrangements for the participation of the Taiwan region in international cooperation in all fields, the spokesperson said, adding that Taiwan does not has other status under international law than that of an inalienable part of China.
The one-China principle is the political foundation of Sino-French relations and a solemn commitment made by all successive French governments since the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and France in 1964, the spokesperson said.
“We urge the French side to respect China’s national sovereignty and territorial integrity, to respect the one-China principle through concrete actions, and to maintain the healthy and stable development of Sino-French relations,” said the spokesperson.
