The President of the Caribbean country, through his account on Channel X, condemned any form of interference in the internal affairs of that brotherly Asian country.
During the day on Monday, the Chinese government stressed that Taiwan is part of the territory of the Asian giant, and cited international legal documents that support this legal status of the island.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Mao Ning stressed that the election results in that region do not change the general consensus of the international community to adhere to the one-China principle.
He added, “80 years ago, China, the United States, and Britain issued the Cairo Declaration, which clearly stated that Taiwan, the Chinese territory that Japan had stolen, would be returned to China.”
On the other hand, Mao explained that Article VIII of the Potsdam Declaration, signed by Beijing, Washington, London, and the Soviet Union in 1945, reaffirmed these provisions and forced Japan's unconditional surrender.
“This series of documents with international legal effect laid the historical and legal foundations that make Taiwan an inalienable territory belonging to China,” the spokesman said.
According to the spokesman, although both sides of the Strait have not yet been unified, China's sovereignty and Taiwan's legal status as part of the Asian giant have never changed.
The island's leadership elections ended last Saturday with the victory of the ruling Democratic Progressive Party's candidate, Lai Ching Tee, a separatist advocate of the island's independence.
On the other hand, out of 113 seats in the Legislative Council, the Chinese Kuomintang Party won 52 seats, the Democratic Progressive Party won 51 seats, the Taiwan People's Party won eight seats, and those not affiliated with any of these political organizations won two.
