China has "lodged stern representations" against a US bill on Taiwan approved by a Senate Committee, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said on Thursday.

The bill sends serious wrong signals to the Taiwan separatists and should not be advanced, said Mao Ning, a spokesperson for China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, at a press briefing in Beijing on Thursday.

"China firmly opposes the US bill on Taiwan and we have lodged stern representations with the US," Mao said. "Should the bill be legislated, the political foundation for China-US relations would be seriously undermined and peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait would be put into jeopardy.”

"No one should underestimate the resolve, will and ability of the Chinese government and people to defend the country's sovereignty and territorial integrity," said Mao.

"We urge the US to stay true to the one-China principle and the three China-US joint communiques, refrain from supporting 'Taiwan independence,' stop playing the Taiwan card to contain China and cease the jurisdiction process."
