China Hailed UN Rejection of Taiwan's 'Representation' Proposal
Adjust font size:

A Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman hailed in Beijing Wednesday the United Nations (UN) rejection of Taiwan's "representation" proposal.

"Any actions breaching the tenet of the UN Charter and the Resolution 2758 of the UN General Assembly, or challenging the one-China principle will be unpopular among the vast majority of UN member countries", spokesman Qin Gang said in a statement issued by the Chinese Foreign Ministry early on Wednesday.

Qin made the remark on the rejection of the proposals calling for the so-called Taiwan's "representation" in the United Nations and "the maintenance of peace across the Taiwan Straits" to be discussed at the UN General Assembly.

Qin also urged the Taiwan authorities and certain countries used by the Taiwan authorities to follow the historical trend and stop all secessionist activities.

On Aug. 10, Burkina Faso, Gambia and a few other countries, instigated by the Taiwan authorities, wrote to the UN secretary-general, requesting the 61st session of the UN General Assembly to discuss the issue and a proposal on the maintenance of peace across the Taiwan Straits.

Since 1993, the General Committee of the UN General Assembly has rejected for 13 consecutive times to add the proposals for the so-called "Taiwan's representation in the UN" into the assembly's agenda.

The Resolution 2758 was adopted in 1971 at the 26th UN General Assembly, which granted the People's Republic of China full legal status in the United Nations.
