Beijing hit back at US president-elect Donald Trump on the weekend, saying the one-China principle is non-negotiable, the South China Morning Post reports. Foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang said on Saturday that the one-China principle was the political foundation for Sino-US ties.”It’s not negotiable. We urge relevant parties in the United States to recognize the high sensitivity of Taiwan issues, and to stick to the promise made by both political parties in the US over the years,” he said. Lu called on the US to properly handle Taiwan issues to ensure cooperation and the stable development of relations between Beijing and Washington. In an interview with The Wall Street Journal on Friday, Trump said that until he saw progress from Beijing on its currency and trade practices, he would not commit to the US agreement with Beijing of not recognizing Taiwan diplomatically, a policy known as “one China.”
