USA committed to 'one China' policy: White House

Another source said there had been "quiet outreach" by the USA business community to Trump's advisers but companies were wary of discussing their concerns about the China policy publicly for fear of becoming a target for the president-elect, who has singled out companies such as Carrier and Boeing. "International politics is not business".

"I fully understand the "one China" policy, but I don't know why we have to be bound by a "one China" policy unless we make a deal with China having to do with other things, including trade", Trump told Fox.

"China needs to launch a resolute struggle with him", the editorial said. "I don't want China dictating to me".

The world is watching Trump as he prepares to assume office. "If he starts off on the foot of currency manipulation and the threat of tariffs and investigations and so on, then the Chinese will retaliate and there's a serious danger that these guys are going to have to manage tensions that they haven't had to before".

Trump's comments are significant because, while he suggests the United States wants to include the One-China policy as part of broader trade discussions, the government in Beijing considers the arrangement nonnegotiable.

President-elect Donald Trump is talking about Taiwan again - and nobody, it seems, is pleased about his comments on the almost four-decade-old basis of U.S.

A Monday editorial in the the Global Times, a newspaper known for its strident nationalism, suggested Trump ought to read some books on U.S.

"There would be nothing left to talk about between the two countries. Taiwan's interests would also suffer as a result".

Trump's comments on "Fox News Sunday", questioning almost four decades of USA policy, came after he prompted a diplomatic protest from China over his decision to accept a telephone call from Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen on December 2.

Geng said China's top diplomat Yang Jiechi, who outranks the foreign minister, had met with Trump advisers, including his pick for national security adviser, retired Army Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, during a transit in NY on his way to Latin America in recent days.

On Sunday, China's top diplomat, State Councilor Yang Jiechi was traveling to US neighbor Mexico, according to the official news agency Xinhua, but Mexican officials could not offer details. He argued that the "one China" policy is meant to maintain peace between China and Taiwan, stressing that the policy is in America's best interests. "It could cut China, but could cut Taiwan as well".

Worth Watching: Time to Buy Duke Realty Corp After Today's Huge Increase?
After the day began at $17.46, the stock was seen hitting $17.50 as its intraday high price and $17.07 as its bottom price. The 52 week high Duke Realty's shares have reached is 28.99 whilst the 52 week low for the company's shares is 18.52.

In the August 17 Communique issued in 1982, the United States reiterated that its government had no intention of "pursuing a policy of "two Chinas" or 'one China, one Taiwan'".

It is no longer a question of whether Taiwan wishes to maintain the "status quo", as it is now the U.S. that is poised to make changes to the "status quo", he said. The hint that "Washington is willing to sacrifice their interests in favour of making deals may encourage greater insecurity" in the region, he said.

He vehemently defended taking a call earlier this month from Tsai Ing-wen, the leader of Taiwan, which Beijing has not controlled for more than 60 years but considers a rogue province awaiting unification.

"Either he doesn't know what he is talking about, or he is endangering the status that Taiwan has always had in US policy", he said. "If the USA goes down that road, other countries are definitely not going to follow".

But the diplomatic balance over Taiwan is so delicate that some analysts fear Trump could be starting a confrontation that could easily spin out of control, endanger other crucial areas of the US-China relationship and even risk a military clash in the Pacific.
