"China has warned that it's 'seriously concerned' after President-elect Donald Trump questioned whether the United States should keep its long-standing position that Taiwan is part of 'one China.' Trump has signaled a willingness to confront Beijing, and his latest comments in an interview with Fox News suggested that he won't hesitate to anger China until the country comes to the bargaining table on trade and North Korea. China's response was measured but clear: co-operation with the US 'would be out of the question' if Trump doesn't adhere to the 'one China' policy -- a cornerstone of bilateral relations since the establishment of diplomatic ties in the 1970s." [editor's note: Taiwan has been independent of the mainland since 1949. The mainland regime's ongoing demand that everyone (including the Taiwanese) pretend that's not the case deserves to be ignored - TLK] (12/12/16)
