Taiwanese government has announced that the Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen will spend four nights in the United States in July this year and she will also be visiting Caribbean diplomatic allies during her visit. However, this has left China fuming and the Chinese government has reportedly requested US to not allow Taiwan President for the visit to Washington.

China’s argument is that Taiwan is just a Chinese province and it has no right for state-to-state relations. They say that it is the most sensitive and important issue in United States’ ties. Regarding the Taiwan President’s visit to US, Taiwan’s Deputy Foreign Minister Miguel Tsao says that “Tsai will spend two nights in the United States each way during her trip to St Vincent and the Grenadines, St Lucia, St Kitts and Nevis, and Haiti from Jul 11 to 22”

However, the Foreign Minister said that the details regarding US visit are still left to be finalized. Taiwan’s Central News Agency says that President Tsai is expected to transit in New York and Denver during her visit. A State Department spokeswoman says that US’s stance on “one-China” policy is the same and it recognizes Beijing and not Taipei.

She added that “The United States facilitates, from time to time, representatives of the Taiwan authorities to transit the United States,” and that “Such transits are undertaken out of consideration for the safety, comfort, convenience and dignity of the passenger and are in keeping with our one-China policy.”

China’s Foreign Minister says that China urges US government “not to allow Tsai Ing-wen to transit, and cautiously and appropriately handle Taiwan related issues, to avoid harming Sino-US relations and peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait”.

He also said that the Chinese government has lodged “stern representations” against Tsai’s transit and have already expressed its concerns regarding the situation.
