Russia views Taiwan as part of China, proceeds from that premise - Lavrov

NUR-SULTAN. Oct 12 (Interfax) - Russia's policy on the Taiwan situation proceeds from the island belonging to China, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

"Just like the overwhelming majority of other countries, Russia views Taiwan as part of the People's Republic of China. This is the premise we proceed from and will continue to proceed from in our policy," Lavrov told reporters in response to a question from Interfax whether Russia views the current situation around Taiwan as a threat to regional security.
