China and Namibia issued a joint communiqué on Tuesday reaffirming their commitment to continuing mutual support on issues concerning sovereignty and territorial integrity.
The communiqué was signed at the end of President Hu Jintao's two-day state visit to the southern African country.
In the communiqué, the Namibian government reiterated its adherence to the one-China policy and its opposition to "Taiwan independence" in any form, including "de jure Taiwan independence," and to Taiwan's accession to any international organization whose membership consists only of sovereign states.
The Namibian side also reiterated its position of not having any official relations or contacts with Taiwan and reaffirmed its support for the Chinese government's efforts to achieve national reunification.
President Hu and his Namibian counterpart, Hifikepunye Pohamba, also agreed to further strengthen bilateral cooperation in international affairs, according to the communiqué.
The Chinese government expressed appreciation for Namibia's efforts in safeguarding regional peace and stability and advancing African integration.
Namibia is the fifth leg of Hu's eight-nation African tour, which has already taken him to Cameroon, Liberia, Sudan and Zambia. After his stay in Namibia, Hu will travel on to South Africa, Mozambique and Seychelles.
