Chinese state media have reported that Chinese President Xi Jinping and US President Donald Trump
recently held a phone call in which they discussed the “one China” policy. The media said that Xi acknowledged the importance of Trump’s reiteration of the “one China” policy and hoped that the United States will handle Taiwan-related issues in line with that policy.
However, a spokesperson for Taiwan’s government, Alex Huang, said Monday that the call had more to do with North Korea.
“Our understanding is that President Trump’s phone call was largely to discuss the situation in the Korean Peninsula with Chinese leader Mr. Xi Jinping, in particular the increasing threat of North Korea’s nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles program,” said Huang. [FULL STORY]
