Hun Sen says no Taiwan trade center allowed in Cambodia

The Cambodia Herald - 18-Jul-14 02:43PM

PHNOM PENH (Xinhua) -- Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen said Friday that his country will not allow China's Taiwan to open any representative office in the territory, noting that Taiwan is just a China's province. 

"We would like to officially stress that our foreign policy is supporting one-China policy," he said during a weekly cabinet meeting. "We cannot allow Taiwan to open any representative office in Cambodia at any cost." "Taiwan is only a province of China," the prime minister said. "This is our official policy."

Hun Sen reiterated that Cambodia does not allow Taiwan to hold a national day or to hoist a flag in Cambodia even in a hotel or elsewhere.

His reaction came after the Taipei Times newspaper online reported Thursday that Cambodia gave green light to Taiwan to open a trade center in Phnom Penh next month.

Hun Sen denied that Cambodia has given approval to Taiwan for such a center. "There may be any group of swindlers cheating Taiwan, or Taiwan itself has an intention to strengthen its position in demanding independence from China," he said.
