How do the agencies of the Chinese Government stationed abroad protect the rights and interests of the Taiwan compatriots?
2004/06/16

It is pointed out by President Jiang Zemin that the agencies of the Chinese Government stationed abroad "should strengthen close ties with compatriots from Taiwan, listen to their views and demands, be concerned with and take into account their interests and make every effort to help them solve their problems."

It is a major duty of the Chinese embassies and consulate stationed in foreign countries to protect the legitimate rights and interests of the vast numbers of Taiwan compatriots residing abroad and to make every effort to help them solve their problems. When their life and property and their legitimate rights and interests are threatened or trespassed upon, the Chinese agencies stationed in the localities including embassies and consulates are duty-bound to do their utmost to provide rescue and protection. In the past, the Chinese embassies and consulates in foreign countries did a large amount useful work to safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of the vast numbers of compatriots from Taiwan through diplomatic and other channels, for instance, the settlement of the arrests of fishing boats and fishermen from Taiwan in Somalia, Argentina, the Philippines and other places, the withdrawal of Taiwan staff and workers from Kuwait during the Gulf War, etc. The relevant Chinese agencies stationed abroad treat the Taiwan compatriots in the same way as the compatriots from the mainland of the motherland by giving them protection and making proper arrangements for them.

From now on, the Chinese agencies stationed abroad must earnestly carry through the spirit of the talks by Jiang Zemin and do a better job of protecting the legitimate rights and interests of Taiwan compatriots residing abroad and providing various services to them.
