Burundi, Cuba and Bulgaria have expressed their support for China's Anti-Secession Law, adopted to prevent "Taiwan independence" and clarify Beijing's position on the question.
In a statement on Friday, the Burundian government reaffirmed its position on the Taiwan issue, saying Burundi will stick to the one-China policy and Taiwan is an inalienable part of China's territory.
The Burundian government and people support the adoption of the Anti-Secession Law by China's National People's Congress, which they believe will effectively check Taiwan's secessionist activities and ease tensions across the Taiwan Straits.
Also on Friday, Cuba's parliament, the National Assembly of People's Power, voiced firm support for the Anti-Secession Law.
It noted that it is a commonly accepted fact by both the United Nations and the international community that there is only one China in the world, which has served as the basis for the friendly relations developed between China and countries around the world.
Under this condition and for the purpose of safeguarding the basic norms of international law, Cuba firmly backs the Anti-Secession Law, it added.
Meanwhile, Bulgaria's Foreign Ministry said on Friday the country agrees to a Monday statement by the European Union that using peaceful means to solve the Taiwan question is the only possible way to maintain stability across the Taiwan Strait.
It reiterated that Bulgaria accepts only one China, saying Taiwan is an inalienable part of the country and the government of the People's Republic of China is its sole legitimate government.
