Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Geng Shuang's Remarks on the Election in Taiwan

Q: The result of the election in Taiwan has come out. What is your comment on that? How do you envisage China's Taiwan-related diplomacy going forward?

A: The spokesperson of the Taiwan Work Office of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council made a statement on the result of the election in Taiwan.

The Taiwan question is China's internal affair. Regardless of what happens in Taiwan, the basic facts won't change: there is only one China in the world and Taiwan is part of China. The Chinese government's position won't change: we stick to the one-China principle and oppose "Taiwan independence", "two Chinas" and "one China, one Taiwan". The international community's consensus on staying committed to the one-China principle won't change, either. We hope and believe that the international community will continue to adhere to the one-China principle, and understand and support the Chinese people's just cause of opposing "Taiwan independence" separatist activities and striving to achieve national reunification.
