China Reaffirms "One China" Policy Amid Taiwan's Presidential Election Outcome

The Chinese Foreign Ministry issued a statement reasserting the "One China" policy, emphasizing that the Taiwan issue is China's internal affair, regardless of changes on the island. This statement followed Lai Ching-te's victory in Taiwan's presidential election, representing the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), known for advocating independence. China maintained that the fundamental fact of Taiwan being part of China remains unchanged, and the one-China principle is crucial for peace in the Taiwan Strait. The international community's consensus on upholding this principle was stressed in the statement.

China warned against official contact between the U.S. and Taiwan, urging adherence to the one-China principle and the three China-U.S. joint communiques. Spokesperson Liu Pengyu cautioned the U.S. against supporting Taiwan's pro-independence movement, emphasizing that Taiwan is an inalienable part of China. This reaction came in response to U.S. Congress delegations' plans to visit Chinese Taipei and express support for the island's anti-Beijing pro-independence stance. President-elect of Taiwan affirmed his commitment to safeguarding the island from China, pledging to continue the pro-Western path set by the incumbent President Tsai Ing-wen.
