Four African countries have expressed their support for China's enactment of the Anti-Secession Law, which is intended to prevent Taiwan's secession from China.
Zambian Foreign Ministry said in a recent statement that the law is good for bringing an early end to the Taiwan issue and will be helpful to maintain peace and stability across the Taiwan Straits, in the Asia Pacific region and the world as a whole.
Equatorial Guinea shares the same view with Zambia. The government of the West-Central African nation said the Anti-Secession Law aims to realize the reunification of the Chinese mainland and Taiwan and voiced the wishes and hopes of all Chinese people.
The Republic of Congo has also released a statement, saying the law is in line with the United Nation's stance on the one-China policy. It also called on all countries in the world to support China's cause of peaceful reunification.
Djibouti in East Africa also has expressed its support for the law and reiterated its stance of upholding the one-China policy.
Earlier this month, the National People's Congress -- the top legislature in China -- passed the 10-article Anti-Secession Law by a vote of 2,896-0 with two abstentions. The law came into effect later after President Hu Jintao signed a presidential decree to promulgate it.
