China hopes the new United States administration will appreciate the great sensitivity of the Taiwan question, and abide by the one-China principle and the three Sino-US joint communiques, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Sunday.

The two sides of the Taiwan Strait must be and will surely be reunified, which is the trend of history and the collective will of the entire Chinese nation, Wang said, adding the one-China principle is the political foundation of the China-US relationship, a red line that should not be crossed.

On the Taiwan question, there is no room for compromise or concession from the Chinese government, he said.

"We would hope to see a clear departure from the previous administration's dangerous practice of 'pushing the red line' and 'playing with fire', and we hope that the Taiwan question will be handled prudently and properly," Wang said.
