EU urges peaceful resolution to Taiwan Strait tensions

The European Union has reiterated its support for the One China Policy and urged "peaceful resolution" of issues in the Taiwan Strait.

"The EU has an interest in preserving peace and the status quo in the Taiwan Strait," a spokesperson for the 27-nation bloc said.

"We encourage a peaceful resolution of cross-strait issues. Tensions should be resolved through dialogue. Appropriate channels of communication should be maintained to reduce risks of miscalculation."

The comments follow a visit by U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to the island of Taiwan, in defiance of warnings from China and her own country's military.
