|Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Kong Quan's Comment On Chen Shuibian's "Stopover" in the United Arab Emirates|
Q: Chen Shuibian stopped over in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates on September 30th.What's China's response on the issue?
A: Regardless of strong opposition of the Chinese side, the United Arab Emirates insisted on permitting Chen Shuibian's "stopover" on its territory for his political activities. This violates the UAE's commitment to one China policy and exerts negative influence on China-UAE relations. We express strong dissatisfaction over the issue and have made solemn representations to the UAE side. We urge the UAE side to immediately stop official exchanges in any form with Taiwan.
