ALMA-ATA, March 15 (Xinhuanet) -- The Uzbek
government will consistently support China's position on the Taiwan issue and
oppose any attempt for "Taiwan independence," Deputy Foreign Minister I.
Mavlanov said Monday in Tashkent, capital of Uzbekistan.
Mavlanov's remarks came shortly
after the National People's Congress, China's legislature, passed the
anti-secession law earlier in the day.
Ties between Uzbekistan and China are advancing
continuously since the two countries established a relationship of
mutually-beneficial cooperation in various fields such as politics,
economy,trade and culture, he said.
Uzbekistan insists that the government of the
People's Republicof China is the sole legitimate government of China and Taiwan
is an inalienable part of the Chinese territory, Mavlanov added.
He said his government opposes any attempt aimed at
creating "two Chinas" or "one China, one Taiwan" and this stance is fully in
line with the Chinese government's policy of peaceful reunification. Enditem
