Chinese Foreign Ministry protested the planned visit of the US Permanent Representative to the UN to Taiwan

China protested over the planned visit of the US Ambassador to the United Nations, Kelly Craft, to Taiwan. This was stated by the official representative of the PRC Foreign Ministry Hua Chunying.

“Our position on US-Taiwan relations is clear and consistent. The US action is a serious violation of the One China Principle and the three Sino-US Joint Communiqués. China strongly protests against this and condemns such actions”, – she said.

“We have noticed that some anti-Chinese officials in the Trump administration, such as US Secretary of State Pompeo, are trying to do whatever they can to further undermine Sino-US relations by the end of their term”.
