BEIJING — A Chinese spokesperson Friday urged the United States to strictly abide by the one-China principle and the three China-U.S. joint communiques and honor the commitment it has made to China on the Taiwan question.

Ma Xiaoguang, a spokesperson of the State Council Taiwan Affairs Office, made the statement when asked to comment on the latest U.S. remarks relevant to the Taiwan question.

The spokesperson urged Washington to handle Taiwan-related issues properly, refrain from sending any wrong signals to separatist forces seeking “Taiwan independence,” and avoid causing further damage to peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait.

The Taiwan question is purely China’s internal affair and brooks no interference from external forces, Ma said.

Vowing that China’s full reunification will surely come to fruition, Ma said Taiwan’s Democratic Progressive Party authority’s attempt to seek “Taiwan independence” by colluding with external forces is bound to fail.
