At a regular press conference on the same day, a reporter asked: It is reported that the so-called Deputy Defense Secretary of the Taiwan authorities went to Maryland in late October to attend the annual US-Taiwan Defense Industry Conference. DOD officials attended the meeting and spoke. What is Chinas comment on this?
Lu Kang said that China firmly opposes any official exchanges and military contacts between the United States and Taiwan, which is consistent and clear.
We urge the United States to strictly abide by the one-China principle and the provisions of the three Sino-US joint communiques, stop any official contacts and military contacts with the Taiwan side and stop the sale of Taiwan weapons. It is hoped that the US side will carefully handle Taiwan related issues so as not to undermine Sino US relations and peace and stability in the Taiwan Straits. He said.
