On the afternoon of May 26, 2018, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi signed the joint communiqué between the People's Republic of China and Bourkina-faso on the resumption of diplomatic relations with Bourkina-faso Foreign Minister Barry in Beijing, which reads as follows:
The People's Republic of China and Bourkina-faso, in accordance with the interests and wishes of the two peoples, hereby decide to resume diplomatic relations at ambassadorial level.
The two governments agreed to develop friendly relations between the two countries in principle of mutual respect for sovereignty and territorial integrity, mutual non-aggression, non-interference in each other's internal affairs, equality and mutual benefit and peaceful coexistence. The Bourkina-faso government admits that there is only one China in the world, the PRC government is the only legitimate government representing all of China, and Taiwan is an inalienable part of Chinese territory.
Bourkina-faso promised that there would be no official relations between Taiwan and any official contacts. Before the signing of the resumption communiqué in Beijing, the Bourkina-faso government issued a statement on May 24 declaring that it had severed its so-called "diplomatic relations" with Taiwan.
