Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin on Monday warned Taiwan authorities that the "Taiwan independence" is a dead-end street with regards to their recent comments on the upcoming Honduran presidential election.

"There is only one China in the world and the Taiwan region is an inalienable part of China's territory," Wang said at the regular press briefing.

"The one-China principle is a universally recognized norm governing international relations and the consensus of the international community"

According to media reports, Honduran presidential candidate for the left-wing Liberty and Refoundation Party Xiomara Castro said on September 6 that she would open diplomatic relations with China if she wins elections in November. Some Taiwan authorities had issued a statement to warn Honduras against "flashy and false" promises by the mainland, adding that it is a usual trick to undermine ties between Taiwan and its "allies".

"We are here to tell Taiwan authorities, 'Taiwan independence' is a dead end and their 'dollar diplomacy' will lead nowhere," Wang stressed.

Any attempts to reverse the historical trend by soliciting foreign support is bound to fail, he added.
