In a recent post on social media, Pakistan Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif reiterated Islamabad's unwavering support for China's stance on Taiwan.

He reaffirmed the country's commitment to the 'One China' policy and recognised Taiwan as an integral part of the People's Republic of China.

“As a strong brother and strategic partner of China, Pakistan has always given its principled support to the Chinese position on Taiwan and will continue to do so. Pakistan adheres to the 'One China' policy, recognises Taiwan as an integral part of the People's Republic of China, and supports the Chinese government's efforts for national reunification. The so-called elections or the change of self-proclaimed government in Taiwan do not change the objective facts on the Taiwan issue,” Shahbaz said in a post on X.

Pakistan’s vocal support for China’s position on Taiwan comes amid growing global attention on the Taiwan Strait tensions and increased diplomatic activity around the status of the island.

Geopolitical complexities are shaping regional dynamics, and Pakistan’s affirmation of solidarity with China underscores the importance of alignment in the broader context of international relations.

China warned the United States on Friday that efforts toward “Taiwan independence” are a “dead end” and will “only backfire”, with an unnamed US official urging Beijing to exercise restraint over the cross-Strait situation.

“For those who are involved in 'Taiwan independence', this will be a dead end, and supporting 'Taiwan independence' will only lead to adverse effects,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said at a regular media briefing on Friday.

It is noteworthy that Beijing considers Taiwan as its part and has threatened to use force to control it.

According to media reports, Prime Minister Shahbaz will visit China in the first week of next month to attend the official launch of the second phase of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.

The report also said that Sharif's departure for China is scheduled for June 4, though minor adjustments in the schedule are possible.
