Last week, US officials confirmed media reports that former Deputy State Secretary William Burns would visit Taipei to meet Taiwanese President Ma Ying-jeou.

"Taiwan is an integral part of China. We urge the US side to adhere to one-China policy, not to interfere in China's internal affairs, to oppose Taiwan independence and to do more for the development of US-China relations and the peaceful development between the two coasts of the Taiwan Strait, and not the other way round," Hong said at a press briefing.

Taiwan became self-governed in the 1940s after a civil war but China still considers it part of its territory.
