My live interview with Radio Sputnik , an international multi-media news channel broadcasting in 30 languages, over 800 hours a day, in 130 cities and 34 countries. Click here
By way of background, the following is posted on the Sputnik website :
"The Chinese state-run tabloid has warned the US president-elect Donald Trump that Beijing will take revenge if he reneged on the one-China policy. The latter refers to the principle insisting that both Taiwan and mainland China constitute inalienable parts of a single state China. The editorial carried in the Global Times came just hours after the Taiwanese president met senior Republican lawmakers in Houston on Sunday.
President Tsai Ing-wen made a stopover en route to Central America. This took place in spite of Beijing’s request not to allow her to enter the U.S. Tsai's office has stayed low key about her U.S. meetings, saying only that she talked with – quote - "friends" during her private and unofficial stopover.
However, in a separate statement US senator from Texas Ted Cruz said he and Tsai discussed upgrading bilateral relations and promoting economic cooperation between their countries. China is deeply suspicious of Tsai, who it thinks wants to push for the formal independence of Taiwan. The self-governing island is regarded by Beijing as a renegade province, ineligible for state-to-state relations. Radio Sputnik discussed the issue with Andrew Leung, international and independent China Strategist based in Hong Kong."
