(Xinhua) Air India's practice of changing "Taiwan" to "Chinese Taipei" on its website deserves recognition, a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson said Thursday.

Air India, India's national carrier, recently changed the designation of "Taiwan" to "Chinese Taipei" on its website.
"The Chinese government's position on this issue is very clear. India and other countries are also very clear about this," spokesperson Lu Kang told a regular press briefing.
He said Air India's practice showed "respect for the objective fact, common sense and international consensus that there is only one China in the world and that Taiwan is a part of China."
"Respecting China's sovereignty and territorial integrity, abiding by Chinese law and respecting Chinese people's feelings are the fundamental guidelines for any foreign enterprise operating in China," Lu noted.

One China and Taiwan being part of that China does not take position over who rules that China, only that there is one China. It is a starting point that most parties can agree to, and the only reason that the Taiwanese ever accepted this principle.

In my opinion, "Chinese Taipei" is a working mid-term solution as continuation of that principle - it also does not go further into defining the leadership of Taiwan.

Mainlanders should be careful to not write more into the principle that what the two sides agreed to - doing so risks wiping out the principle that was already agreed.

Speaking of sovereignty and territoral integrity purely from mainland perspectibe is a step to that direction.
