Beijing, Feb 15: Chi on Wednesday lodged a protest over an ongoing visit by Taiwanese MPs to New Delhi and asked India to honour its commitment to “One Chi policy”. Beijing also warned New Delhi to be cautious in dealing with Taiwan. “Chi has urged India to honour its commitment to the One Chi policy and cautiously handle issues regarding Taiwan,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said. India has a commitment on issues regarding Taiwan, Xinhua news agency quoted him as saying.
Chi considers Taiwan a breakaway province, which it has vowed to reunite some day. India is among the countries that have no diplomatic ties with the self-ruled island.
“Chi has always been opposed to any official contact between Taiwan and countries having diplomatic ties with Chi,” the spokesperson said. Three Taiwanese lawmakers are on a visit to India.
“We hope India respects and understands Chi’s core concerns, sticks to the One Chi policy and properly handles issues regarding Taiwan in a bid to maintain healthy and stable growth of Chi-India relations.” (IANS)
