Spokesperson of the Chinese Mission to the EU Speaks on a Question Concerning the Planned Visit of MEPs to Taiwan
2021-10-27 05:02

Q: According to news reports, the European Parliament Special Committee on Foreign Interference in all Democratic Processes in the EU, including Disinformation (INGE), plans to send a delegation to visit Taiwan in early November. What is your comment?

A: The One-China principle is a universally recognized norm in international relations and an international consensus. It is also the political foundation for the establishment of diplomatic relations and the development of bilateral relations between China and the EU. Not having official exchanges in any form with Taiwan authorities is an essential part of the adherence to the One-China principle. The European Parliament is an official body of the EU. If its committee sends MEPs to visit Taiwan, that would seriously violate the EU’s commitment to the One-China policy, damage China’s core interest and undermine the healthy development of China-EU relations.

We will make further reactions in accordance with the development of the situation.
