Trump-Tsai phone call will not change one-China situation | Updated: 2016-12-03 13:33

Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Saturday called the phone call between Taiwan leader Tsai Ing-Wen and the US president-elect Donald Trump a "petty action" by Taiwan, and said the call will "not at all" change the one-China situation in the international community.

Wang made the remarks after the opening ceremony of a symposium on international situation and China's foreign policy in Beijing, when asked to comment on the phone call which took place on Friday.

"I believe the call will not change the one-China policy the US has been observing over many years," Wang said.

He also said the policy is the political basis of the healthy development of China-US relations, and China doesn't want to see any disturbance to such basis.

The ABC News Radio quoted Trump's transition team as saying that the two discussed the "close economic, political, and security ties between Taiwan and the United States".

Trump said on Twitter that Tsai called him to congratulate him on winning the presidential election.
