Beijing urges Washington to stop official contact with Taiwan

China has expressed strong dissatisfaction and firm opposition and has lodged solemn representations with the United States over the upcoming visit of U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar to the Taiwan region, said Wang Wenbin, a spokesperson for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, on Wednesday. He stressed, “The One-China Principle is the political basis of China-U.S. ties. We urge the U.S. to abide by the One-China principle and three Joint Communiques, stop any form of official contact with Taiwan, deal with Taiwan-related issues properly, and avoid sending any wrong signals to Taiwan independence forces.”

    The political status of Taiwan is complicated. The Republic of China (ROC) is no longer a member of the UN, having been replaced by the People’s Republic of China (PRC) in 1971.
