|Foreign Ministry Spokesman Kong Quan's Remarks on the US Congratulations to the Taiwan Authorities|
Q: It is reported that the US White House spokesman congratulated the Taiwan authorities after the "Central Election Commission" of Taiwan announced the election results on 26th March, 2004. What is your comment?
A: We are firmly opposed to the wrong act of the US side, which has violated the principles of three Sino-US Joint Communiques and interfered in China's internal affairs.
There is only one China in the world, and Taiwan is a part of China. The US side has time and again committed itself to the Chinese side to strictly adhering to the One-China policy, abiding by the three Sino-US Joint Communiques and opposing "Taiwan independence" or any words or activities of the Taiwan authorities to unilaterally change the status quo of Taiwan or to move toward "Taiwan independence". The US government should honor its words.
