BEIJING, February 15, People’s Daily (Reporter: Jiang Bo): Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said at a regular press conference on February 15 that China has made solemn representations with India on Taiwan-related issues. It is hoped that the Indian side will uphold the one-China principle and properly handle Taiwan-related issues with prudence.
According to reports, three Taiwan “legislators” are visiting India, and that a proposal was made by them to “upgrade Taiwan office in India”.
Geng Shuang said that we have long been opposing all forms of official contact and interactions between Taiwan and countries that have diplomatic relations with China, as well as their mutual deployment of official institutions. This position is consistent and clear-cut.
He said that the Indian side has made commitments on Taiwan-related issues. It is hoped that the Indian side will respect and understand China’s core concerns, uphold the one-China principle, properly handle Taiwan-related issues with prudence, and maintain a sound and steady growth of China-India relations.
