The Chinese Foreign Ministry has stressed that its “One-China” policy is not negotiable and called on US President-elect Donald Trump to acknowledge the “high sensitivity” of matters relating to Taiwan, PressTV reported.
The “One-China” policy is that only state called China exists but with two governments, one in Beijing, and one in Taiwan. China considers Taiwan as a breakaway province that was established in 1949.
“The One-China principle, which is the political foundation of the China-US relations, is non-negotiable,” said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman in a statement released on the agency’s website on Saturday.
“In order to avoid disruption to the sound and steady development of the China-US relations and bilateral cooperation in key areas, we urge relevant parties in the US to fully recognize the high sensitivity of the Taiwan question, approach Taiwan-related issues with prudence, and honor the commitment made by all previous US administrations of both parties on adhering to the one-China policy,” Kang added.
