China upset at name change of Japan's Interchange Association in Taiwan


12-29-2016 11:23 BJT

China has urged Japan to adhere to the One-China policy, after the country renamed its Interchange Association in Taiwan to the Japan-Taiwan Exchange Association. The Association represents Japan's interests in Taiwan.

"I want to reiterate that China's stance on the Taiwan issue is consistent and clear. We resolutely oppose any attempts to create 'one China, one Taiwan', or 'two Chinas'," said Hua Chunying, spokesperson of Chinese Foreign Ministry.

"As for the negative move by Japan on the Taiwan issue, we are extremely dissatisfied. China urges Japan to abide by the principles set by the Sino-Japanese Joint Statement and commitments it has made to China, uphold the One-China principle, and not send the wrong message to Taiwan or the international community." 

When asked to comment on the United States' latest provision for military cooperation with Taiwan, spokesperson for the State Council's Taiwan Affairs Office, An Fengshan, also urged the US to respect the One-China policy. He said the Taiwan issue involves China's national sovereignty and territorial integrity and that China opposes US arms sales to Taiwan.
