World leaders from different corners of the globe have reiterated their commitment to upholding the one-China principle and opposing all forms of "Taiwan independence" separatism.

President of the Central African Republic (CAR) Faustin-Archange Touadera emphasized that his country committed to the one-China principle when it established ties with China in 1964, and has since officially reiterated its stance.

"The Central African Republic and China are brotherly and friendly countries. And we support the one-China principle of the People's Republic of China. And we can't go back on it. We reiterated it when we signed a joint press release [with China] back in 1998. This was included in the joint press release. So we support the one-China principle," said Touadera.

The president stressed that the Central African Republic acknowledges Resolution 2758 of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), which restored all the rights of the People's Republic of China and recognized the representatives of its government as the only legitimate representatives of China to the UN.

"And of course, we also support the United Nations Resolutions, notably Resolution 2758, which recognizes one China. This is the position of the Central African Republic on this issue," he said.

In the South Asian Region, Speaker of the Sri Lankan Parliament Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena reiterated that Sri Lanka upholds the one-China policy and opposes any attempt to split China.

"The one-China policy is also another important aspect of the basic agreements that Sri Lanka and China had. So we have reiterated one-China policy in several locations, and we have been following the same principle up to now. So we are very happy that we are not going to support any kind of independence or any kind of separation with China. And we believe that China's territorial integrity is intact, and should be intact also," he said.

Greater Bay Area launches its first full-schedule China-Europe freight train

The Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area on Wednesday launched its first full-time schedule China-Europe freight train, aiming to enhance logistical efficiency in trade exchanges between this key Chinese economic region and inland Europe.

On Wednesday morning, the X8120 China-Europe freight train, loaded with goods such as air conditioners, coffee machine accessories, and eggbeaters, departed from the Guangzhou International Port and headed to Warsaw, the capital city of Poland.

The China-Europe full-time schedule train refers to a train service that operates according to a fixed schedule, where departure times, routes, and stops are predetermined and regular.

Previously, when China-Europe trains passed through various countries, the local railway departments had to set the handover time according to the actual situation on the ground, which was easy to cause many invalid and long stopovers on the route, making it hard to realize the fixed arrival and departure time of the whole journey.

By coordinating with railway departments of the countries it passes through, the full-time schedule train ensures that it stops and departs on time at each station, thereby enhancing the stability and efficiency of the entire journey.

Since the operation began, the full-schedule China-Europe freight train bound for Warsaw will depart from the Guangzhou International Port every Wednesday. It exits the country via the Erenhot land port in north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, covering a total distance of about 11,200 kilometers. The journey is expected to take 16 days, saving about 30 percent of the transportation time compared with previous regular freight trains on the same route.
