The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) continues to adhere to the one-China policy and firmly opposes Taiwan's attempts to join the United Nations, a Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Sunday.

"The DPRK government will stick to the one-China policy and support China's struggle for unification under the principle of one country, two systems," the spokesman told Xinhua.

According to Resolution 2758 of the UN General Assembly, passed in 1971, China resumed its seat at the UN, which is a globally recognized fact, he added.

On Monday, a spokesperson for UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said that the UN Office of Legal Affairs had rejected the application for UN membership by Taiwan leader Chen Shui-bian.
