Kathmandu: Chinese Ambassador to Nepal Hou Yanqi said that China believes that the government of Nepal and its people will continue to abide by the one-China policy.
Making a comment on the visit by US Speaker Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan, Ambassador Hou said, “China highly appreciates Nepal’s longstanding commitment to the one-China principle and resolutely opposing “Taiwan Independence”. It is also the political foundation of China-Nepal relations.”
“China and Nepal are good neighbors, trustworthy friends, and reliable partners linked by mountains and rivers. The two countries have always understood and supported each other on issues of core interests concerning respective sovereignty, security, and territorial integrity,” she added.
Ambassador Hou said she believes that Nepal will continue to abide by the one-China principle and understand and support China’s legitimate and justified position and work together with China to defend each other’s sovereignty, security, and territorial integrity.
She said that the visit by Speaker Pelosi is a serious violation of the one-China principle and the political foundation of China-U.S. relations, and seriously infringes upon China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
“It gravely undermines peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait. China firmly opposes and sternly condemns this, and has made serious démarche and strong protest to the United States,” Ambassador Hou added.
