BEIJING, July 14 -- A Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson said on Friday that the one-China principle has become the general consensus of the international community.

It was reported that Taiwan's current leader, Tsai Ing-wen, issued a "most heartfelt welcome" to visiting Paraguayan president Horacio Cartes. Tsai said on Twitter that Taiwan and Paraguay signed new economic cooperation agreements.

China and Paraguay do not have diplomatic ties, and Paraguay is Taiwan's only so-called "diplomatic ally" in South America at present.

"Any attempt to create 'two Chinas' or 'one China, one Taiwan' will be firmly opposed by the Chinese people," Geng said, adding that such an attempt is not in accordance with the fundamental interest of the people of Taiwan.

The spokesperson urged the Taiwan authority to come back to the right track set in the 1992 Consensus, which affirms that both sides of the strait belong to one and the same China.

"We also advised some people in Taiwan not to have a very limited outlook or deceive themselves and others," Geng said.
