Chinese FM: Taiwan's separation from motherland will never be allowed


 , Updated 14:03, 07-Mar-2024

There will be a family photo of the whole international community in which all members uphold the one-China principle, which is only a matter of time, said Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Thursday.

Wang, also a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, made the remarks during a press conference on the sidelines of the second session of the 14th National People's Congress in Beijing.

Noting China will continue to strive for peaceful reunification with the greatest sincerity, Wang said the bottom line is also quite clear that China will never allow Taiwan to be separated from the motherland.

Whoever engages in "Taiwan independence" on the island will be held accountable by history, Wang said, adding that whoever in the world connives at and supports "Taiwan independence" will get burned for playing with fire and taste the bitter fruit of their own doing.

Noting more than 180 countries and international organizations have reaffirmed their adherence to the one-China principle following the two elections in the Taiwan region in 2024, Wang said that shows the one-China principle has become a universal consensus of the international community.

The stronger the commitment to the one-China principle is, the greater the guarantee for the peace across the Straits will be, he added.

All people of Chinese descent should uphold the overall interests of the Chinese nation, jointly oppose "Taiwan independence," and support peaceful reunification, Wang said.
