Taiwan: US relations won't be harmed by Trump-Xi meeting

Taipei: Taiwan said on Thursday that it is certain its relations with the US won't be hurt when President Donald Trump holds his first summit with his Chinese partner Xi Jinping this week, refering to affirmations from the US side.

"We are profoundly worried with the Trump-Xi meeting, preceding which we have been in full correspondence with the US side to guarantee that the interests of the Republic of China are not influenced," Wang was cited as saying by the official Central News Agency.

While Trump prior said he didn't feel "bound" by existing US arrangement toward the self-overseeing island that China considers some portion of its region, he later reaffirmed Washington's dedication to the 4-decade-old "One China" strategy, smoothing the route for a February telephone call with Xi.
