Chinese Embassy responds to newspaper article on Taiwan


Dear Editor:


Pointe Xpress carried a news report by Reuters on October 11 titled “Taiwan won’t be forced to bow to China, president says”, which is misleading.


To set records straight, the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in Antigua and Barbuda wishes to reiterate China’s position on the Taiwan question: There is only one China in the world.


Taiwan is an inalienable part of China’s territory. Although the two sides have yet to be reunified, the sovereignty and territory of China has never been severed, and the fact that the mainland and Taiwan belong to one and same China has never changed.


Taiwan leader Tsai Ing-wen’s speech on October 10 advocated “Taiwan independence”, incited confrontations with the mainland and distorted facts. Under the guise of socalled consensus and unity, Tsai had attempted to kidnap public opinion in Taiwan and collude with foreign forces for her purpose of seeking “independence”.


On the basis of adhering to the one-China principle, there will be no obstacles in exchanges between political parties and groups in Taiwan and the mainland. However, the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), which seeks “Taiwan independence” and denies the 1992 Consensus that embodies the one-China principle, has broken the foundation for crossStraits dialogue.


Their words and deeds are not only “rash” and in no way represent “goodwill”. The DPP’s provocations to seek “Taiwan independence” remain the source of tension and turbulence in crossStraits relations, the biggest threat to peace and stability in the Taiwan Straits, and the greatest obstacle to our national reunification. National reunification by peaceful means best serves the interests of the Chinese nation as a whole, including our compatriots in Taiwan.


The central government of China will adhere to the basic policies of peaceful reunification and One Country-Two Systems, uphold the one-China principle and the 1992 Consensus, and work for the peaceful development of cross-Strait relations. Since the establishment of its diplomatic relations with the People’s Republic of China, the government of Antigua and Barbuda has been committed to the one-China principle, which China highly commends.


It is our hope that the government and people of Antigua and Barbuda continue to support the government and people of China in the just cause of safeguarding China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, opposing separatist activities, and achieving national reunification.

  1. It would be wise for ‘the SPOKESPERSON of the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in Antigua and Barbuda’ to understand that THE GOVERMENT OF ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA and THE PEOPLE OF ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA are NOT ONE AND THE SAME.

    Our ‘governments’ might ‘BEND DOWN to China for its money’ but quite a SUBSTANTIAL number of ANTIGUANS AND BARBUDANS HATE COMMUNISM.

    Be advised.

    • “ADD”, I’m trying to figure out what you are trying to say. Both China and Tiawan have two of the highest standards of living IN THE WHOLE WORLD, and are top rated in almost all charts. They are also highly EDUCATED societies.

  2. You can take your little propaganda press release and put it where to sun don’t shine.
    Since this spokesman is in the talking mood
    Tell me about the 1 million Uighurs in Xinjang
    (1) Largest detention camp since World War 2
    (2)women forced sterilization
    and forced abortions.
    (3) In 2009 , 200 Uighurs killed protesting their
    treatment by the Government.
    (4) All Passports taken to prevent travel
    (5) Facial recognition to track the Uighurs
    (6) Phones are confiscated to download all
    (7) City divided in squares of 500 every square
    has a police station to monitor residents.
    (8) Mainland Chinese men are sent to sleep with
    women whose husbands are in the camps.
    (9) Any attempt to gain access is blocked by
    the Government.
    (10) Some of the very bags and clothing worn
    is made with these. very folks hands.
    I don’t give a rats ass what they do or give.
    Dealing with them is BLOOD money all
    over your hands

  3. Yes, there is only ONE China, and the government of Antigua and Barbuda recognizes that. At the same time there is only ONE Taiwan. ONE China and ONE Taiwan!!!! Two separate countries. That’s the reality. What’s so hard to understand????
