Beijing Youth Daily: on August 18, the Ministry of foreign affairs and international cooperation of the federal government of Somalia issued a statement condemning Taiwan for undermining the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Somalia. It was previously reported that the “Taiwan Representative Office in Somaliland” was officially listed. What is China’s comment on this? Zhao Lijian: if the authorities try to engage in separatist activities in the international arena, they will never succeed and will inevitably be rejected by the international community. I would like to emphasize once again that there is only one China in the world, and Taiwan is an integral part of China. The one China principle is a universally recognized norm in international relations and a general consensus of the international community. Here, I also advise the parties concerned not to take chances and go against the tide and challenge the one China principle. This will only set fire to one’s own self.
