Beijing: Call a ploy by Taipei

AFP-Jiji BEIJING (AFP-Jiji) — A call between U.S. President-elect Donald Trump and Taiwan leader Tsai Ing-wen was a “ploy by the Taiwan side that simply cannot change ... the One China framework,” Beijing’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi told Hong Kong’s Phoenix TV on Saturday.

“I do not think it will change the One China policy that the U.S. government has insisted on applying over the years,” Wang was quoted as saying after Trump broke with decades of cautious U.S. diplomacy to speak with the Taiwan president.

“The One China principle is the cornerstone of the healthy development of Sino-U.S. relations, and we do not want any interference or disappearance of this political foundation,” he added.Speech
