Q:It is reported that Lee Teung-hui will be visiting Japan this May, do you have any comment?
A:The Taiwan question bears on the core interest of China and the national emotions of the 1.3 billion Chinese people. It also constitutes the political basis for China-Japan relations. The purpose of Lee Teung-hui's incessant attempts to visit Japan is to take advantage of the platform of Japan to boost Taiwan separatists, undermining the peaceful reunification of the two sides across the Strait and China-Japan relations. We have requested Japan to abide by the principle of the three political documents between the two sides including Sino-Japanese Joint Statement, take concrete steps to fulfill its commitment on the Taiwan question and properly handle relevant questions with caution.
