Embassy Spokesperson's letter to the Financial Times on unjustified comments on the establishment of diplomatic ties between China and the Dominican Republic
2018/05/10

Ms. Zeng Rong, Spokesperson of the Chinese Embassy in the UK, recently wrote a letter to the Financial Times about the unjustified comments carried by the newspaper with regard to the establishment of diplomatic ties between China and the Dominican Republic. The Financial Times published the letter on 9 May 2018, the full text of which is as follows:

The article on the Dominican Republic switching allegiance from Taiwan to China (FT.com, May 1) and the letter in response to the article (May 4) contain many unjustified comments on the establishment of diplomatic ties between China and the Dominican Republic and on the relations between the two sides of the Taiwan strait.

There is only one China in the world. The Government of the People's Republic of China is the only legitimate government representing the whole of China, and Taiwan is an inalienable part of China's territory. Forty-seven years ago, the one-China principle was incorporated in the UN General Assembly Resolution 2758. Today, it has become a well recognised principle for international relations and a universal consensus of the international community. The establishment of diplomatic ties between China and the Dominican Republic is another testament to the fact that the one-China principle reflects the trend of the times.

We believe that diplomatic ties between China and the Dominican Republic will open up broad prospects for co-operation between the two countries. This will bring unprecedented opportunities for the development of the Dominican Republic and tangible benefits to the peoples of the two countries.

Zeng Rong

Spokesperson of the Chinese Embassy in the UK
