Cuba reiterates its support for the One China Principle

cuba chinaCuba’s Foreign Minister and Party Political Bureau member, Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla, on his official Twitter account, reaffirmed our country’s invariable, unequivocal position in support of the “One China” principle and condemned interference in the internal affairs of this sister country.

The principle establishes that the entire Chinese nation, including the island of Taiwan, is a single country with a legitimate government and capital in Beijing. Respect for this government is a basic requirement for maintaining diplomatic relations with China.

Beijing has repeatedly criticized the United States for its interactions with Taiwan and the sale of arms to the island’s separatist government. This conduct continues despite the fact that the One China principle was endorsed in joint communiqués signed by China and the United States in 1972, 1978 and 1982.

In 1971, with 170 votes in the General Assembly, the international community approved a resolution recognizing the People’s Republic of China as the only legitimate representative of the nation before the United Nations, with Taiwan as an inalienable part of its territory.

Prensa Latina points out that in order to advance towards the complete reunification of China’s national territory, Beijing defends the policy of One Country, Two Systems, implemented in the administrative regions of Hong Kong and Macao.

Cuba also condemned interference in China’s internal affairs with a statement from the Foreign Ministry, in September of 2019, rejecting attempts to violate the nation’s territorial integrity and sovereignty, in the wake of violent demonstrations and acts of vandalism in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, promoted from abroad and intended to affect the political, economic and social order of the nation, and generate insecurity.
