More countries across the world have expressed their support for China's Anti-Secession Law, which was passed on last Monday by China's National People's Congress to prevent the secession of Taiwan from China.
In Latin America, the Bolivia-China parliamentarian friendship group sent a letter Tuesday to Wu Bangguo, chairman of China's NPC Standing Committee, expressing its support for the newly adopted law.
It said the one-China principal has been affirmed by United Nations resolutions, and that the Taiwan question is China's internal affair and should not be interfered by any foreign countries.
In Saint Lucia, both Hilford Deterville, president of Senate, and J. Baden Allain, speaker of House of Assembly, voiced their full understanding and support for the Anti-Secession Law on last Thursday.
They vowed to support the government's adherence to the one-China policy.
In Namibia, Magreth Mensah-Williams, vice chairperson of the National Council, spoke highly of the Anti-Secession Law, saying her parliament supports China's efforts to defend national sovereignty and territorial integrity.
Addressing the parliament, Mensah-Williams said that it is the core interest for every country to safeguard its sovereignty and territorial integrity.
"There is only one China in the world and Taiwan is an inalienable part of China," she said.
What China has done will be conducive to helping maintain peace and stability in the Taiwan Straits, the Asia-Pacific region and the world at large, said Mensah-Williams.
The Anti-Secession Law came into effect last Monday after President Hu Jintao signed a presidential decree to promulgate it.
