A statement issued during Pakistani Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif's visit to China on June 7 compared the proposal to Beijing's claim that Taiwan is part of China.

“Both sides stressed that the mandate of UN General Assembly Resolution 2758 does not tolerate any dispute or challenge,” the statement said.

“Pakistan reaffirmed its firm commitment to the One-China principle and reiterated that Taiwan is an inalienable part of the territory of the People's Republic of China,” the statement said.

According to Focus Taiwan, MOFA issued a press release on Monday saying that Resolution 2758 only addresses the issue of China's representation at the UN and does not mention Taiwan.

The Foreign Ministry said the bill does not authorize the PRC to represent Taiwan in the UN system, nor does it mention that Taiwan is part of the PRC.

The ministry said that China (the official name of Taiwan) is an independent and democratic country.

The Foreign Ministry stressed that neither democratic Taiwan nor authoritarian China are subservient to each other, and said China's political pressure will not change Taiwan's belief in democracy.

The Foreign Ministry stressed that China was deliberately distorting and politicising the UN document to create a false connection between the language of the resolution and Beijing's so-called “one China principle.”

Taiwan is a key player in defending democracy and freedom around the world. The MOFA said in the statement that it will continue to strengthen ties with like-minded partners to counter China's threats and military intimidation, prevent the expansion of authoritarianism, and ensure cross-strait peace and stability.

Tensions between China and Taiwan are at an all-time high. Despite never ruling Taiwan, China's ruling Communist Party considers it part of its territory and has threatened to annex it by force if necessary.
