Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Monday reiterated China's resolve on reunification.
The historical and legal fact that Taiwan is an inalienable part of China will not change no matter how the situation in Taiwan may evolve, Wang said when addressing the 2020 New Year reception hosted by the Chinese Foreign Ministry.
Nothing will shake the resolve and confidence of the Chinese government and people in advancing the reunification, he said.
The one-China principle has been a consensus shared by the international community and a universally recognized norm governing international relations, Wang said.
The annually reception was attended by nearly 400 diplomatic envoys and representatives of relevant Chinese departments.
