China's top political advisory body has voiced strong dissatisfaction with and resolute opposition to a report recently adopted by the European Parliament's Committee on Foreign Affairs.
Despite China's solemn representations, the report on so-called "EU-Taiwan political relations and cooperation" advocated the elevation of EU-Taiwan relations, said a statement issued on Thursday by the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference National Committee.
The report seriously violated the one-China principle and blatantly interfered in China's internal affairs, and was also severely in conflict with international law and the basic norms of international relations, said the statement.
Stressing that there is only one China in the world and Taiwan is an inseparable part of China, the statement said the Taiwan question is purely a matter of China's internal affairs.
The one-China principle is a widely recognized norm of international relations and a general consensus of the international community, as well as the prerequisite and the political basis for China to maintain and develop friendly relations of cooperation with other countries.
The statement said China resolutely opposes any interference in its internal affairs and obstruction of the process toward the peaceful reunification of China.
The committee urged the EU side to fully recognize the highly sensitive nature of the Taiwan question, respect China's sovereignty and territorial integrity, and cease sending any wrong signal to the "Taiwan independence" forces.
The EU side should invest more efforts in boosting the mutual trust and cooperation, and ensure that the China-EU relationship steadily moves forward on the right track, said the statement.
