Taiwan: US Relations Won’t Be Harmed By Trump, Chinese President Meeting


Taiwan said Thursday that it is confident its relations with the U.S. won’t be harmed when President Donald Trump holds his first summit with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping this week, citing assurances from the U.S. side, Fox News reports.

Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Eleanor Wang said at a news conference that the government was in close contact with Washington and was assured the island’s interests would not be harmed.

While Trump earlier said he didn’t feel “bound” by existing U.S. policy toward the self-governing island that China considers part of its territory, he later reaffirmed Washington’s commitment to the 4-decade-old “One China” policy, smoothing the way for a February phone call with Xi.
