China opposes Taiwan region joining official agreement or organisation

China firmly opposes official interactions between any country and the Taiwan region, and firmly rejects Taiwan's accession to any agreement or organisation of official nature, a foreign ministry spokesperson said Thursday.

Spokesperson Zhao Lijian made the remarks when asked to comment on Taiwan's announcement of applying to join the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) Wednesday, reports Xinhua.

Noting there is only one China in the world, and Taiwan is an inalienable part of the Chinese territory, Zhao said that the one-China principle is a universally recognised norm governing international relations and the consensus of the international community.
