India to continue one-China policy
Adjust font size:

India will continue to abide by the one-China policy and oppose any activity that is against the one-China principal, said Navtej Sarna, spokesman of Indian Ministry of External Affairs on Thursday.

In an exclusive interview with Xinhua on Taiwan issue, Sarna said the government of India has followed the one-China policy and does not have diplomatic or official relations with Taiwan. The India's policy is consistent and has been conveyed to the government of the People's Republic of China on several occasions.  

Most recently, he said, during the Prime Minister of India's visit to China in January 2008, in a joint statement, the Indian side recalls that India was among the first countries to recognize that there is one China, and that its one-China policy has remained unchanged.

"Our prime minister's meetings with the Chinese leaders conveyed India's one-China policy clear and consistent. India has never supported Taiwan independence or UN membership. I think that should make our position clear," said the spokesman.
