Chinese Foreign Ministry has again rejected President-elect Donald Trump’s suggestion that he might use support of Taiwan as a bargaining chip in future negotiations between the two sides.

Beijing has repeatedly pushed back against any suggested reconsideration of Taiwan, which it considers a core national interest. Spokesman Lu Kang has also stated that one China” policy is non-negotiable. Since recognizing Beijing in 1979, Washington has maintained only unofficial ties with Taiwan.

Lu also stated that the government of the People’s Republic of China is the only legitimate government representing China.  “That is the fact acknowledged by the international community and no one can change,” Lu said in a statement.

Trump told The Wall Street Journal in an interview published Friday that “everything is under negotiation, including ‘one China.'”

This interview is the latest indication Trump that he will shake up the U.S.-China relationship, particularly on Taiwan, which China considers a core national interest.
