Washington [US]March 16 (ANI): The United States expressed concern over China’s “provocative” activities across the Taiwan Strait during talks between US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan and Chinese counterpart Yang Jiechi on Monday.
According to a senior Biden administration official, the talks, held in Rome on Monday, focused heavily on the war between Russia and Ukraine and took place over an “intense, seven-hour session,” Focus Taiwan reported.
Both sides discussed recent “escalating actions” taken by North Korea and the need for the United States and China to manage their competition so that it does not develop into conflict, according to the official.

As for Taiwan, the U.S. official said Sullivan had “stressed concerns about Beijing’s courses and provocative actions across the Taiwan Strait.”
He also reiterated Washington’s one-China policy “based on the Taiwan Relations Act, Three Communiques and Six Assurances,” the official said, referring to the series of commitments that form the basis of US ties with both China and Taiwan, Focus Taiwan reported further. .
Under the “one China” policy U.S recognizes the Chinese position that there is only one China and that Taiwan is part of China.
During the negotiations, Yang also called on the United States to recognize “the high sensitivity of the Taiwan issue” and to adhere to the principle of one-China instead of “going further down the dangerous road” to support Taiwan’s independence, according to China’s state-run news agency Xinhua.
On Tuesday, the Taiwan Foreign Ministry (MOFA) said it had received briefings from the United States both before and after the meeting between Sullivan and Yang, but declined to comment on what was said, according to Focus Taiwan. (ANI)
