Cuba ratifies its support to the “one China” principle

Havana, Jan 19 (Prensa Latina) The Cuban Foreign Ministry reiterated its firm and unchanging support to the principle of “one China”, stating that the Caribbean country recognizes Taiwan as an inalienable part of China’s territory.

In an official statement, the Foreign Ministry expressed Cuba’s support to Beijing “in the face of the pretensions of secessionist forces and external actors to take advantage of this issue to undermine the territorial integrity and sovereignty of the People’s Republic of China, intervene in its internal affairs and undermine regional and international peace and security”.

The text reaffirms that “Cuba’s position is consistent with United Nations General Assembly resolution 2758 of October 25, 1971, and with the position of the overwhelming majority of the international community that officially recognizes the People’s Republic of China as the sole and legitimate representative of the entire Chinese people”.

In this sense, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs highlights in its statement that “Cuba also recognizes and supports the efforts of the Chinese Government to achieve national reunification”.
