BEIJING - China on Thursday urged a certain Czech politician to cancel the wrong decision and stop sending wrong signals to "Taiwan independence" separatist forces.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Mao Ning made the remarks at a regular press briefing when asked to comment on the planned visit to Taiwan by the speaker of the Czech parliament in March.
Noting that the Taiwan question is China's internal affair and concerns China's core interest, Mao said China firmly opposes any form of official interaction between its Taiwan region and countries having diplomatic ties with China. "We oppose any political manipulation using the Taiwan question."
