Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Joanne Ou also said that Taiwan and Somaliland’s efforts will be focused on strengthening their bilateral cooperation and their relationship will be based on a long-term friendship between the two people’s common values such as freedom, democracy, justice and rule of law.
Beijing reportedly continues its efforts to persuade Somaliland not to violate its sovereignty, and not to forge relations with Taiwan, a state that has yet to receive a full recognition.
