According to Tang the forthcoming visits will push forward the development of Sino-US relations.

It is in the interests of the two countries to oppose and contain "Taiwan independence" forces and maintain peace and stability in the Taiwan Straits, he added. He hoped that the US side would abide by the commitments it had made to China on the Taiwan question.

Rice confirmed that the US would continue to abide by the one-China policy.

In an address to the National Committee on US-China Relations and US-China Business Council the same day, Tang again called for appropriate handling of the Taiwan question. "It is the key to a stable and growing relationship between China and the United States," Tang said.

"We are ready to do our utmost with maximum sincerity to secure a peaceful reunification. But we will never put up with 'Taiwan independence' or allow any one to secede Taiwan from China by any means."

He noted that the Taiwan authorities have so far refused to recognize the "one-China" principle and "Taiwan independence" forces are still pushing their agenda of "constitutional reengineering," "name rectification" and other "de jure independence" activities, Tang said.

"Opposing `Taiwan independence' and maintaining peace and stability in the Straits serve the common interests of both China and the United States," he said.

Tang also called for sound growth of Sino-US economic co-operation

As to trade friction, the two sides should work out the problems through consultations and strive for a win-win result, he said.
