Taiwan is an inalienable part of the Chinese territory, and China is ready to work towards a peaceful reunification with "utmost sincerity and efforts," Foreign Minister Li Zhaoxing said on Monday.

Speaking to world leaders gathering at the United Nations for the annual high-level UN debate, Li reiterated China's policy of "peaceful reunification and one country, two systems."

"Safeguarding China's sovereignty and territorial integrity and realizing complete national reunification at an earlier date is the common will and firm resolve of the 1.3 billion Chinese people," said Li.

"We, more than anybody else, want to see a peaceful settlement of the Taiwan question," he said. "We will never tolerate Taiwan independence, nor will we allow anyone to separate Taiwan from therest of China in whatever way."

He also called on the international community to fully recognize the complex and sensitive nature of the current situation across the Taiwan Strait and the serious threat posed by the separatist activities of the Taiwan authorities to the stability of Taiwan Strait and the peace of Asia-Pacific region.

"We expect you to continue supporting the Chinese Government's efforts for peaceful reunification and join us in containing the pro-independence activities in the interest of stability in the Strait and world peace." he added.
