China has lodged a protest over Donald Trump’s conversation with Taiwan’s Tsai Ing-wen, the first between a US president or president-elect and a Taiwanese leader since 1979. Beijing urged the US to stick to the “one China” policy to avoid wrecking ties.

The “one China” principle is key to a healthy China-US relationship, China’s Foreign Ministry said on Saturday, while urging Washington to carefully handle the Taiwan issue, according to Reuters.

Earlier, Beijing called Trump’s conversation with the Taiwanese president much ado about nothing, “just a petty action” by Taipei.

“This is just the Taiwan side engaging in a petty action, and cannot change the ‘one China’ structure already formed by the international community,” Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said at an academic forum on Saturday, Hong Kong-based Phoenix Television reported, according to Reuters.
