‘Proper’ stance by US sought on Tai­wan

China Daily (Canada) - - ACROSS AMERICAS - By ZHANG YUNBI in Bei­jing zhangyunbi@chi­nadaily.com.cn

For­eign Min­is­ter Wang Yi on Mon­day urged the United States to “prop­erly tackle the Tai­wan ques­tion” dur­ing a tele­phone con­ver­sa­tion with US Sec­re­tary of State John Kerry.

It is hoped that the US will up­hold its one-China pol­icy and firmly stay com­mit­ted to key joint state­ments re­leased by the two coun­tries, Wang was quoted as say­ing in a re­lease is­sued by the For­eign Min­istry.

Kerry said the US has not and will not change its po­si­tion re­gard­ing Tai­wan and it does not sup­port “Tai­wan in­de­pen­dence”.

The two sides also agreed to “con­tinue com­mu­ni­ca­tion and prop­erly tackle mar­itime is­sues”, the re­lease said.
