“The Republic of China (Taiwan) R.O.C. government reiterates that the South China Sea Islands are part of the territory and that it is indisputable that the R.O.C. is entitled to all rights over the South China Sea Islands and their relevant waters in accordance with international law and the law of the sea. The R.O.C. government urges all parties concerned to exercise restraint and refrain from taking unilateral actions that could elevate tensions in the region. It also solemnly protests and calls for an immediate stop to any actions that infringe upon R.O.C. sovereignty over the South China Sea Islands,” the MOFA said.
