China warns US over ‘red line’ after American ambassador makes first Taiwan visit for 42 years


China has warned the US towards crossing its “crimson line” after an American ambassador visited Taiwan on the weekend, making it the primary such official go to within the final 42 years.

John Hennessey-Niland, the US ambassador to the pacific island nation of Palau, was a part of the delegation that got here with Palauan president Surangel Whipps for a five-day journey.

In 1979, the US severed ties with Taiwan in favour of Beijing. Nonetheless, in the previous few years amid rising tensions with China, the US has elevated its actions with democratically-ruled Taipei, a transfer which has irked Beijing.

On Monday, China’s international ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian, whereas replying to a question in regards to the US ambassador’s go to, mentioned: “I wish to stress that the one China precept is a universally recognised norm for worldwide relations and a standard consensus recognised, accepted and practiced by the overwhelming majority of nations on the earth.”

He emphasised that the Taiwan query is the “most essential and delicate situation in China-US relations.”
