ABUJA, (CAJ News) – NIGERIA’S ordering of Taiwan to move its unofficial embassy from Abuja highlights the West African country’s devotion to the one-China policy.
This is according to Chinese Foreign Minister, Wang Yi, following a meeting with his Nigerian counterpart, Geoffrey Onyeama, in Abuja recently.
Yi stated that a few days ago, Nigeria asked Taiwanese offices in the country to remove their “false names” and “false plates”,and reiterated its adherence to the One-China policy.
He appreciated the stance by Nigeria.
Meanwhile, Onyeama said that relevant measures of Nigeria aim at fulfilling the promises made by President Muhammadu Buhari during his visit to China and dealing with issues left by history that interfere with bilateral political mutual trust.
“It is hoped that both sides can take it as an opportunity to open up new prospects of bilateral cooperation,” said Onyeama.
One-China refers to the policy or view that there is only one state called China despite the existence of two governments that claim to be China.
Countries seeking diplomatic relations with the People’s Republic of China (PRC, Mainland China) must break official relations with the Republic of China (ROC, Taiwan) and vice versa.
