I AM WRITING to point out that your Jan. 25 editorial, ''The two China's two-China policy'' is contrary to the fact and therefore incorrect.
As is known to all, there is but one China in the world, and Taiwan is an inalienable part of China. This is confirmed by the United Nations General Assembly Resolution 2758.
The great majority of the countries in the world respect and abide by this resolution. The government of the United States recognizes that there is but one China, that Taiwan is part of China, and that the government of the People's Republic of China is the sole legal government of China.
The Chinese government is firmly opposed to any rhetoric or action of creating ''two Chinas'' or ''one China, one Taiwan.''
The assertion of the above-mentioned editorial would inevitably hurt the feelings of the Chinese people on both sides of the Taiwan Straits.
I sincerely hope that appropriate measures will be taken by your respected paper to ensure that mistakes of this kind should not recur in the future.
The writer is press counselor at the Embassy of the People's Republic of China.
