Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian reiterated the Islamic Republic’s support for the one-China policy, denouncing the US for its breach of China’s territorial integrity.
“Respect for countries’ territorial integrity is among the recognized fundamentals of the international law,” the top Iranian diplomat wrote in a tweet on Wednesday.
“Within this framework, the Islamic Republic’s support for the ‘one-China’ principle is indubitable.”
Amir Abdollahian remarks came after US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrapped up her controversial two-day visit to Chinese Taipei as a show of support for separatist voices on the self-ruled island.
“The US’ provocative measures,” Amirabdollahian added, “have turned into a source of threat against the international peace and stability.”
China enjoys sovereignty over Chinese Taipei under the “one-China” principle. Almost all world countries recognize that sovereignty.
The United States, too, recognizes Chinese sovereignty over the island but has long courted the Chinese Taipei in an attempt to unnerve Beijing.
Washington, which backs the Chinese Taipei’s secessionist president, also continues to sell weapons to the island in violation of its own stated policy.
The US House speaker was the highest-ranking American government official to visit Chinese Taipei in 25 years.
