|Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying's Remarks on the US President's Endorsement of an Act Supporting Taiwan's Participation in the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO)|
Q: On July 12, US President Barack Obama signed into law an act of Congress backing Taiwan's participation in the 38th Session of the ICAO Assembly as an observer. What is China's comment?
A: Taiwan compatriots' participation in activities of international organizations, including those of the ICAO is China's internal affairs. China is firmly opposed to the interference by any foreign government, organization or individual.
The relevant act of the US Congress grossly violated the "one China" policy and the principle of the three Sino-US Joint Communiqués. China expresses firm opposition to that and has lodged solemn representations with the US side. We urge the US side to honor its commitment to China on Taiwan-related issues, handle them in a discreet and proper manner, stop interfering in China's internal affairs and do more things that are conducive to the peaceful development of cross-Straits relations, instead of the contrary.
