Adjust font size:

Cuba, Myanmar, Jordan and the African Union (AU) have emphasized their support for the one-China principle in statements or speeches, while criticizing Taiwan leader Chen Shui-bian's secessionist moves to end the work of the ‘National Unification Council' (NUC) and the application of the ‘National Unification Guidelines' (NUGs).


The Cuban government issued a statement on Sunday saying Chen Shui-bian's latest move was aimed at confronting endeavors to realize the reunification of China.


In the statement Cuba reiterated its unswerving stance on the one-China policy saying, "Taiwan is an inalienable part of China." They denounced the conspiracy which ran counter to the process of reunification, harmed the legitimate rights of the Chinese people and undermined regional stability.


Myanmar's government issued a communiqué on Sunday saying it steadfastly stuck to the one-China principle.


Taiwan leader Chen Shui-bian's decision to end the functions of the NUC and the application of the NUGs would undermine the peace and stability in the Asian Pacific region. Therefore the decision was unacceptable the communiqué stated.  


When meeting a delegation from the Chinese Association for International Understanding on Sunday, Jordanian Senate Vice President Faisal al-Fayez, said that since the two countries established diplomatic relations the Jordanian government recognized there was only one China-- namely the People's Republic of China.


Jordan would maintain its position on the 'one-China' principle and support the peaceful reunification of China, said al-Fayez, who is also Chairman of the Foreign Service Board of the Senate and former Prime Minister.


Speaking with Lin Lin, Chinese Ambassador in Ethiopia and Chinese representative at the AU on Saturday, Chairman of the AU's Commission, Alpha Oumar Konare, said the AU stood firm on  the one-China principle and contended Taiwan was part of China.


The AU strongly condemned Chen Shui-bian's move to split China through ending the work of  the NUC and the application of the NUGs, said Konare.


The NUC was set up in 1990 by the Taiwan authorities and led by Lee Teng-hui. A total of 14 meetings of the group have been held but none since Chen Shui-bian became Taiwan leader.


The NUGs were issued in 1991 stating that both the Chinese mainland and Taiwan were under the sovereignty of China and the promotion of the state's reunification should be the common dominator for all Chinese.


The guidelines also outlined a three-phase goal for the realization of China's reunification.
