|Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Zhang Qiyue's Comment on US State Department's Response to the "Ten-Point Statement"|
Q: After the leader of the Taiwan Authorities made the "ten-point statement", the spokesperson of the US State Department said that the US side held there were "positive and constructive" contents in the statement. What comment do you have on this?
A: The officials in charge of the State Council Taiwan Affairs Office and the Association for Relations Across the Taiwan Straits have made clear our position on those contents in the "ten-point statement" by the Taiwan Authorities' leader. What I wish to point out here is that the US side should be fully aware of the fraudulence and grave danger of the splittist activities conducted by the "Taiwan's pro-indepence" forces. It should honor the commitments repeatedly reaffirmed by the US Government and leaders to adhere to the one China policy, observe the three Sino-US joint communiques and oppose the "Taiwan independence" as well as refrain from sending any wrong signals to "Taiwan's pro-independence" forces. Only doing so can help maintain the development of China-US relations and the peace and stability across the Taiwan Straits.
