The Chinese representative said that the Taiwan issue is the core of China’s core interests and an insurmountable red line in China-US relations. China urges the United States to abide by the One China Principle and the provisions of the Three Joint Sino-U.S. Communiqués, faithfully fulfill the commitments made by U.S. leaders not to support “Taiwan independence”, stop formal exchanges between the U.S. and Taiwan, stop improving the substantial US-Taiwan relations, and end the split aside” independence of Taiwan.
