Pakistan reaffirms its 'One-China' policy over Taiwan Strait issue

Islamabad (Web Desk): Pakistan has reaffirmed its strong commitment to 'One-China' Policy and expressed firm support to China's sovereignty and territorial integrity.

In a statement, the Foreign Office (FO) said that Pakistan is deeply concerned over the evolving situation in the Taiwan Strait, which has serious implications for regional peace and stability.

The statement said that the world is already reeling through a critical security situation due to the Ukraine conflict, with destabilizing implications for international food and energy security.

"The world cannot afford another crisis that has negative consequences for global peace, security and economy," it maintained.

The FO statement added that Pakistan strongly believes that inter-state relations should be based on mutual respect, non-interference in internal affairs, and peaceful resolution of issues by upholding the principles of the United Nations (UN) charter, international law and bilateral agreements.

Meanwhile, China has strongly condemned the visit by speaker of US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan, branding it 'extremely dangerous' and a threat to regional stability.

In a statement, Chinese foreign ministry said this visit has a severe impact on China-US relations as it seriously infringes upon China's sovereignty and territorial integrity.
