Damascus, SANA – Syria renewed its commitment to the One-China principle, stressing its firm position against any attempts at interference in China’s internal affairs, a Foreign and Expatriates Ministry official source said.
In a statement on Tuesday, the source added that commenting on the local elections held lately in Taiwan, the Syrian government affirms that Taiwan authorities should respect and abide by their commitments to the 1992 Consensus.
It is important that the officials of Taiwan “avoid provocative attitudes and statements that are not in the interest of the Chinese citizens in this region and do harm to the friendly relations with the motherland,” added the statement.
It noted that attempts to interfere in the internal affairs of the People’s Republic of China contravene the objectives and principles of the UN Charter.
