Islamabad: The Foreign Ministry has said that the One China policy is a precondition for any country to have diplomatic ties with China, reports China Radio International.

Pakistan is a front-line country which has been out rightly supporting one-China policy over the years.

Spokesperson Geng Shuang expressed appreciation to countries that have recently reiterated their support for the policy. "We appreciate those countries who reaffirmed their commitment to the One-China policy. Here I would like to reiterate that there is only one China and Taiwan is a part of China. The People's Republic of China is the sole legitimate government representing China.”

“The One-China Principle is the premise and foundation of any cooperative relationship between China and other countries," he said.
