A: China firmly opposes any form of official contacts and military ties between the United States and the Taiwan side. This position is consistent and clear. We urge the United States to abide by the one-China principle and the provisions of the three Sino-US joint communiques, stop any official and military contacts with Taiwan, stop the sale of Taiwan weapons and handle Taiwan-related issues carefully so as not to damage Sino-US relations and peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait.
