In a Foreign Ministry declaration, Somalia uttered support for China's dominion, political independence, regional integrity and national unity, and loyalty to UN and African Union resolutions.
"The government of Somalia declares its full solidarity with the People's Republic of China in defending its sovereignty and territorial integrity while affirming its firm position to respect the one-China policy, considering Taiwan an inalienable part of China's territory," in agreement with the declaration.
