Q: It is reported that on December 2, US President-elect Donald Trump had a telephone conversation with Taiwan leader Tsai Ing-wen. What is your comment on that?
A: We have noted the report and lodged solemn representations with the party concerned in the US. It must be pointed out that there is but one China in the World, and that Taiwan is an inalienable part of China. The government of the People's Republic of China is the only legitimate government representing China. That is the well-known fact. The one China principle is the political basis of the China-US relationship. We urge the relevant party in the US to honor its commitment to the one China policy and the principles of the three joint communiqués, and properly deal with Taiwan-related issues in a discreet manner, so as to avoid unnecessary disruptions to the overall China-US relationship.
