Lu Kang, spokesperson of China’s Foreign Ministry, urged the US to deal with issues related to Taiwan prudently and properly. 

A US military spokesman confirmed that the destroyer USS Preble and a Navy oil tanker sailed through the Taiwan Strait on Wednesday.

“The Taiwan question is the most important and sensitive in China-US relations,” Lu said. 

Lu said Beijing kept a close eye on the latest transit and urged Washington to honor the one-China policy and the Three Joint Communiques and avoid any actions that may harm bilateral ties and cross-Strait stability and peace.
