In a statement the Chinese Embassy in Honiara highly appreciates Solomon Islands’ firm adherence to the one-China principle.
The result of the election in the Taiwan region cannot change the underlying dynamic and future direction of cross-Strait relations. Nor can it stop the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation and China’s reunification, which is the trend of the times and history.
The one-China principle is unshakable, and brooks no challenge.
