BEIJING, Feb. 15 (Xinhua) — China has urged India to honor its commitment to the one-China policy and cautiously handle issues regarding Taiwan, said a Foreign Ministry spokesperson on Wednesday.
Spokesperson Geng Shuang made the remarks while responding to a question concerning an India visit by three Taiwan lawmakers, during which they asked to upgrade Taiwan office in India.
“China has always been opposed to any official contact between Taiwan and countries having diplomatic ties with China,” Geng told a routine press briefing.
China also opposes setting up any official organization between those countries and Taiwan, he added.
India has a commitment on issues regarding Taiwan, Geng said. “We hope India respects and understands China’s core concerns, sticks to the one-China policy and properly handle issues regarding Taiwan, in a bid to maintain healthy and stable growth of China-India relations.”
