MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On December 2, US President-elect Donald Trump became the first US president or president-elect to speak with a Taiwanese leader in an official capacity since 1979. On December 11, Trump said he would not be bound by the US "one China" policy regarding relations with Taiwan.
"The United States should carefully and adequately address the issue of Taiwan in order to avoid unnecessary obstacles in the China-US relations," Li said.
He added that the Chinese side insists that the United States should strictly adhere to the "one China" policy.
Since then, relations between China and Taiwan have been strained, as China refuses to recognize Taiwan as a separate and independent political and diplomatic entity.
