|Foreign Ministry Spokesman Qin Gang's Remarks on a U.S. Congress Resolution on "Supporting Taiwan's Democratic Election"|
Q: It is reported that the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the House of Representatives of the U.S. Congress adopted a resolution on "supporting Taiwan's democratic election" on February 27, 2008. Do you have any comment?
A: In disregard of China's representations, The Committee on Foreign Affairs of the House of Representatives of the U.S. Congress adopted the so-called resolution on "supporting Taiwan's democratic election". The resolution violates the one China policy to which the US Government adheres and sent a wrong message to the Chen Shui-bian authorities. China stands firmly opposed to it. We request the U.S. Congress to fully recognize the complexity and sensitivity of the current situation across the Taiwan Strait, as well as the secessionist nature of the Chen Shui-bian authorities, and to take measures to elilminate the negative impact of the above-mentioned resolution and stop sending any wrong signals to the "Taiwan independence" forces.
