The Chinese side stands firmly opposed to a US Congress resolution on "supporting Taiwan's democratic election", said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang in Beijing on Friday.
Qin made the remarks in response to a question on the resolution passed on February 27 by the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the House of Representatives of the US Congress.
Qin said the resolution, which was passed in disregard of China's representations, went against the one-China policy and sent a wrong signal to Chen Shui-bian, and the Chinese side stands firmly opposed to it.
He said the Chinese side requests the US Congress to see clearly the complexity and sensitivity of the current situation across the Taiwan Strait, as well as the secessionist nature of the Taiwan authorities.
The Chinese side also requests the US Congress to take measures to remove the negative impact brought about by the above-mentioned resolution and stop sending any wrong signals to the "Taiwan independence" secessionist forces, added Qin.
