China's eight non-Communist parties issued a joint statement on Thursday, condemning U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's visit to Taiwan region.
The U.S. government has taken wrong actions on the Taiwan question and supported "Taiwan Independence" forces, the statement says. The U.S. severely damages the peace and stability of the Taiwan Straits. Pelosi's visit is a serious political provocation signifying a higher level interaction between the U.S. and Taiwan officials, it added.
It notes that Taiwan's Democratic Progressive Party refuses to recognize the 1992 Consensus and colludes with external forces to create chaos. The eight non-Communist parties firmly oppose any attempts or behavior aimed to divide China, as well as any external interference on the Taiwan question.
It states that the parties have an honored tradition of patriotism, and embrace peace. They firmly support all necessary measures taken by the Chinese government to defend national sovereignty and territorial integrity.
It is the common aspiration and sacred responsibility of all Chinese people to realize China's complete reunification, the statement said. The determination of the Chinese government and the Chinese people is rock-solid.
Any attempts to obstruct the complete reunification of China and the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation are doomed to fail, the parties said in the statement.
The joint statement was issued by the Revolutionary Committee of the Chinese Kuomintang, the China Democratic League, the China National Democratic Construction Association, the China Association for Promoting Democracy, the Chinese Peasants and Workers Democratic Party, the China Zhi Gong Party, the Jiusan Society, and the Taiwan Democratic Self-Government League.
