China opposes as US health chief visits Taipei

China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian on Monday (August 10) said that China firmly opposed any US-Taiwan contact as U.S. health chief Alex Azar visited the island to offer President Donald Trump’s support.

Azar arrived in Taiwan on Sunday(August 9), the highest-level U.S. official to visit in four decades. Azar is visiting to strengthen economic and public-health cooperation with Taiwan and support its international role in fighting the novel coronavirus.

China, which claims the island as its own, condemned the visit which comes after a period of sharply deteriorating relations between China and the United States.

The United States, which has had more coronavirus cases and deaths than any other country, has repeatedly clashed with China over the pandemic, accusing Beijing of lacking transparency.
