A Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman said in Beijing Sunday that China noticed the United States repeated its stance to stick to the one-China policy and opposed the so-called "Taiwan Independence."
On Jan. 29, Taiwan authority leader Chen Shui-bian proposed the abolishment of the "National Unification Council (NUC) and the National Unification Guidelines" and talked of "applying for United Nations membership under the name of Taiwan."
A U.S. Department spokesperson on Jan. 30 repeated the one-China policy, saying the United States opposes unilateral changes to the status quo across the Taiwan Straits.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Kong Quan said that Chen's remarks again proved his unchanged "Taiwan Independence" separatist stance and "exposed the dangerous direction" of the Taiwan authority to stimulate "Taiwan Independence" separatist activities and to undermine cross-Straits relations.
"We hope the U.S. side and the international community will keep alert to the danger and severe damage caused by the so-called 'Taiwan Independence'," Kong said when asked for comments.
"(We hope they will) support the Chinese government to strike against the 'Taiwan Independence' separatist activities, promote the peaceful and stable development of cross-Straits relations and jointly keep peace and stability across the Straits and in the Asia-Pacific region," he said.
