FM Spokesman Comments on U.S. Official's Remarks (01/31/02)

  Foreign Ministry Spokesman Kong Quan refuted on January 31 the recent remarks by the head of the American Institute in Taiwan.
  Kong was asked by a reporter to comment on reports that the head of the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) had said recently that the U.S. should continue to sell weapons to Taiwan to help Taiwan defend itself, and that the Chinese side should not set any pre-condition for cross-straits dialogue.

 Kong said that the AIT head's remarks are erroneous and not worth commenting, and that the AIT head had run counter to the U.S. government's commitment on the One-China principle and provisions of the three Sino-U.S Joint Communiqués.
The Taiwan issue is China's internal affair, which allows no intervention by any foreigner, Kong added.
