US ‘clarifies’ statements on ‘one China’

HE SAID, SHE SAID:Confusion and misinterpretation prevailed as clarifications had to be made over the Chinese and US chiefs of staff’s respective remarks about ‘one China’

“The US needs to make it clear that its ‘one China’ policy only relates to which government is the government of China,” a FAPA official said.

“The US needs to make it clear that it supports democracy on the island and fully supports the people on the island determining their own future. The US should also make more of an effort to accept Taiwan as a full and equal member in the international community, instead of leaving it in diplomatic isolation. Admiral Mullen obviously misspoke, but it is highly regrettable that such misstatements by high US officials have become so commonplace,” the FAPA official added.
