Islam News – China condemned the United States on Monday for scrapping curbs on interactions with Taiwan officials, saying nobody could prevent China’s “reunification”, while Taiwan’s foreign minister hailed the U.S. move as a sign of “global partnership”, as Reuters agency reported.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced the change on Saturday, in the waning days of the Republican Trump administration before Democrat Joe Biden assumes the presidency on Jan. 20.

China, which claims democratic Taiwan as its own territory, said it was “resolutely opposed” to the decision and condemned it.
