CPSL slams US Speaker’s Taiwan visit


Issuing a press release, Communist Party of Sri Lanka (CPSL) condemned Speaker of US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan.

CPSL said that this move seriously violates the one-China principle, maliciously infringes on China’s sovereignty and blatantly engages in political provocations, which has aroused strong indignation among the Chinese people and widespread opposition from the international community.

They further said, Taiwan is an inalienable part of China’s territory, and the Government of the People’s Republic of China is the sole legal government representing the whole of China.

“In 1979, the United States made a clear commitment in the China-U.S. Joint Communiqué on the Establishment of Diplomatic Relations – “The United States of America recognises the Government of the People’s Republic of China as the sole legal Government of China,” they stated.

CPSL said, the US will have to be held responsible for all consequences of this provocative visit.
