China News Service, The Hague, October 27th. The Chinese Embassy in the Netherlands notified on the 26th that the spokesperson of the Chinese Embassy in the Netherlands sent a letter to the newspaper to refute the news that the Dutch "Telegraph" published a Taiwan-related commentary in the personal commentary page. .
The Chinese Embassy in the Netherlands stated that an article written by Gerrit van der Wees, a former Dutch diplomat and current American think tank scholar, seriously distorted the facts about Taiwan’s history and the recent situation in the Taiwan Strait, advocating that the Netherlands abandon “one China”. Principles, their views are very dangerous and even have ulterior motives.
Regarding the history of Taiwan, the Chinese Embassy in the Netherlands stated that Taiwan has always been an inalienable part of China and has never been an independent country.
As early as 1800 years ago, the ancient Chinese government had begun to navigate Taiwan.
Since the 13th century, successive Chinese governments have established administrative agencies in Taiwan to exercise effective jurisdiction over Taiwan.
After the founding of the People’s Republic of China in 1949, the Central People’s Government of the People’s Republic of China became the sole legal government of China, and the Government of the People’s Republic of China naturally fully enjoyed and exercised China’s sovereignty, including sovereignty over Taiwan.
At the same time, there is only one China in the world, and the government of the People's Republic of China is the only legal government representing the whole of China.
2021 is the 50th anniversary of the restoration of New China's legal seat in the United Nations. According to United Nations Resolution 2758, the government of the People's Republic of China is the only legal representative of China in the United Nations, and the representative of the Taiwan authorities has been expelled.
The Chinese Embassy in the Netherlands emphasized that the "one China" principle is a universally recognized norm of international relations and a general consensus of the international community, and it is also the political basis for the development of relations between China and other countries, including the Netherlands.
The 1972 Sino-Dutch joint communique on the upgrading of diplomatic relations clearly stated that the Chinese government reaffirmed that Taiwan is a province of the People's Republic of China and the Netherlands respects this position of the Chinese government and reiterated that it recognizes the government of the People's Republic of China as the sole legal government of China.
Regarding the situation in the Taiwan Strait, the Chinese Embassy in the Netherlands stated that the Taiwan Democratic Progressive Party authorities and the "Taiwan Independence" separatist forces are collaborating with external forces and continuously seeking "independence" provocations. This is the source of tension and turbulence in cross-strait relations and the greatest threat to peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait.
However, individual countries outside the region continued to show off their force in the Taiwan Strait and China's surrounding areas, and artificially instigated geopolitical confrontation, fully exposing their true features of undermining regional peace and stability.
The Chinese Embassy in the Netherlands pointed out that Wei Gerry played up the so-called "Chinese military threat" in his commentary and encouraged the Netherlands to support Taiwan’s "independence." Adding to the flames, bringing more burdens and disasters to the people on the island, and severely harming Sino-Dutch relations. It can be described as a hundred harm but no benefit. "As a former Dutch diplomat and current American think tank scholar, he spread ridiculous remarks in the Dutch media and is instigating The motive behind the Dutch relationship is doubtful."
The Chinese Embassy in the Netherlands emphasized that the Taiwan issue is purely an internal affair of China, which has a bearing on China’s core interests and the national sentiments of the Chinese people, and does not allow any outside interference.
China adheres to the basic policy of "peaceful reunification and one country, two systems", adheres to the one-China principle and the "1992 consensus", and promotes the peaceful development of cross-strait relations.
No one should underestimate the Chinese people's determination, determination, and strong ability to defend national sovereignty and territorial integrity.
