US Opens New De-Facto Embassy in Taiwan, Angering China
Wednesday, 13 June 2018 04:28 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

The United States has opened a new state-of-the-art facility in Taiwan that serves as Washington's de facto embassy in the self-ruled island that Beijing claims is part of its territory.

Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen and U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Marie Royce were among the dignitaries on hand for Tuesday's unveiling ceremony for the new $256 million American Institute in Taipei, which serves U.S. interests in the absence of formal diplomatic ties with Taiwan.

The opening of the new facility angered Beijing. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said China had lodged "stern representations" with Washington.

Geng said the ministry urged the United States to uphold the "one China" policy and avoid damaging China-U.S. relations, as well as "peace and stability" in the Taiwan Strait.
