MOSCOW, November 8 (Itar-Tass) - Air service between Moscow and Taipei (Taiwan) will be made by private companies in accordance with Russia’s position under which Taiwan Island is China’s inalienable part, Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Friday.
“Relations between Russia and Taiwan’s organisations are being regulated by President Vladimir Putin’s decree of September 15, 1992. The decree says relations should be unofficial and non-governmental. Thus, the Moscow-Taipei and the Taipei-Moscow commissions on economic and cultural cooperation came to agreement to introduce direct air service,” the diplomat said.
“Russia considers Taiwan China’s inalienable part and the Chinese government the unique legal government that the country represents.” “The Russian government fully respects China’s sovereignty and conforms to the position of ‘one China’,” he said.
“Russia and China held consultations on air service between Moscow and Taipei. Both parties reached an agreement to this effect,” Lukashevich added.
“Air service between Moscow and Taipei will be made by non-state, private joint stock companies Transaero from Russia and China Airlines from Taiwan with symbols in the form of plum flower. The crews will use uniforms and marks of non-state airlines,” the diplomat said.
