Statement by the Government of Maldives following elections in Taiwan region

The Maldives is firmly committed to the one-China principle, which remains the bedrock of the Maldives relations with China. The Joint Communique issued at the end of the State Visit to China by President Dr Mohamed Muizzu, reaffirmed that principle, noting that “there is but one China in the world, the Government of the People's Republic of China is the sole legal government representing the whole of China, and Taiwan is an inalienable part of China's territory. The Maldives opposes any statement or action that undermines China's sovereignty and territorial integrity, opposes all "Taiwan independence" separatist activities, and will not develop any form of official relations with Taiwan. The Maldives opposes external interference in China's internal affairs under any pretext and supports all efforts made by China to achieve national reunification.”
