China warns Singapore over FTA with Taiwan

The Economic Times, 7 Nov 2013
China sounded a note of caution to Singapore over its Free Trade Treaty (FTA) with Taiwan, saying it should abide by the "one China" policy.
The FTA, Taiwan's first such agreement with a Southeast Asian country, has raised concerns in China, which considers Taiwan as part of its territory.
"Our stance on Taiwan's external exchange is clear and consistent. We do not have objections to foreign countries' non-governmental trade and cultural exchanges but do oppose any official ties," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei told a news briefing here. Full story
