China Ready to Negotiate Trade Terms with Trump Administration

Jan 20, 2017, 00:20

Defending his visit to the US, You told a press conference on Thursday that the One China policy applies to the US but not Taiwan, adding that Taiwan hopes Washington will stick to the 1979 Taiwan Relations Act; which compels the US to help Taiwan defend itself. Apart from attending the presidential inauguration ceremony in Washington, the delegation is commissioned to greet Taiwanese compatriots in the USA ahead of the Lunar New Year and hold talks with politicians and academics.

Trump broke with decades of precedent last month by taking a congratulatory telephone call from Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen, and he has also said the "One China" policy was up for negotiation, a position Beijing strongly rejected.

Under President Jimmy Carter, the U.S. switched its diplomatic recognition of China from Taipei to Beijing in a joint communiqué issued by America and the People's Republic of China, acknowledging "the Chinese position that there is but one China and Taiwan is part of China".

In an editorial, the Global Times said that as the United States has the stronger economy, China may suffer more once a trade war starts, but China "will take the US on to the end".

Well, Hua will be disappointed to know that the United States has made no move to stop the Taiwanese delegation team - which is led by Yu Shyi-kun, the former chairman of Taiwan's Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) - from attending the inauguration.

She added: "We once again urge relevant parties in the USA to allow no delegation sent by the Taiwan authority to attend the inauguration ceremony of the President, and not to have any official contact with Taiwan".

Mr Trump is due to be sworn in as the new US President on Friday. China considers Taiwan a renegade province.

Noting the significant progress of China-U.S. ties during Barack Obama's eight years in office, Hua said the achievements show that the common interests between the two countries go far beyond their differences, and that cooperation can deliver benefits to the two countries as well as the world.

China will send its ambassador to the US, Cui Tiankai, to the inauguration.

China is protesting the attendance of Taiwan's delegation headed by a former premier at Donald Trump's inauguration Friday.

Taiwan typically sends a delegation to USA presidential inaugurations but Trump's forays into foreign policy have strained relations with China before he even enters the White House.

In recent weeks, several influential state-sponsored newspapers have also written strongly-worded editorials warning Mr Trump to cease questioning the "One China" policy.
