US should stop 'elevating' relations with Taiwan - China

The United States should sincerely respect the "one-China principle," and stop "elevating" its relations with Taiwan, Beijing's Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian (pictured) stated during a press conference on Monday.

During the previous week, a report hinted that Washington could allow Taiwan to change the name of its diplomatic mission in the US from "Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office" to "Taiwan Representative Office."

Zhao urged the US against allowing the change of the Office's name, stressing that the country should "stop official exchange with the island."
