Beijing protests US Taiwan visit - China's FM

China's Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian (pictured) said on Monday that China protests exchanges between the United States and the island of Taiwan.

"Taiwan question is the most important and sensitive issue in China-US relations," he noted in a press conference, adding that Washington has "seriously" breached its commitment to the "one-China principle, the political foundation" of the relationship between US and Beijing.

Earlier today, US Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar became the highest-ranking US government member to visit the territory since Washington changed its diplomatic recognition of China from Taipei to Beijing in 1979.
