Foreign countries back China's Anti-Secession Law

The international community has continued to express support for the adoption of the Anti-Secession Law by China's legislature, which is intended to prevent Taiwan's secession from China.

In a letter to the Chinese ambassador to Tonga, Tongan Foreign Minister Sonatane Tu'akinamolahi Taumoepeau-Tupou reaffirmed his country's commitment to the one-China policy and voiced appreciation for the Anti-Secession Law, approved last week by China's National People's Congress.

Taiwan is an inalienable part of China and the Taiwan question is China's internal affair, in which no foreign forces have the right to interfere, he said.

The Tongan government understands China's move to enact the law and supports China's reunification cause, the minister said.

An Armenian Foreign Ministry spokesman said Monday that Armenia supports the Chinese people's endeavor to achieve national reunification and wishes their efforts, including the newly-enacted Anti-Secession Law, bear fruits.

Armenia made clear its position on the one-China principle in the joint declaration signed last September by the heads of state of Armenia and China, the spokesman said.

In a letter to his Chinese counterpart, Li Zhaoxing, Yemeni Foreign Minister Abu Bakr Abdullah al-Kurbi said Yemen backs China's move to protect its territorial integrity and supports the adoption of the Anti-Secession Law by China's legislature.
