Ren said that the Taiwan issue bears on China's sovereignty and territorial integrity, and remains the most important and sensitive issue in China-US relations.
"We urge the US to earnestly abide by the One-China policy and the three Sino-US joint communiques, and handle the Taiwan-related questions in a prudent manner so as not to damage Sino-US relations and peace and stability across the Taiwan Straits," Ren added. "Chinese People's Liberation Army will always maintain a high degree of alert and has the resolve to safeguard China's sovereignty and territorial integrity."
