Taipei, March 17 (CNA) Specialists Saturday described United State President Donald Trump’s signing of the Taiwan Travel Act as symbolically meaningful, as it conveys a message of backing to Taiwan.
Trump signed the bill, that encourages visits among government officials of the United States & Taiwan at all levels, a day earlier, despite strong opposition from China.
In doing so, the United State is letting China know that its approach to its relationship by Taiwan & China perhaps be “completely different” from the method it was in the past, according to Su.
Although Trump indeed had the power to make such high-level official exchanges occur if he wanted to, the Taiwan Travel Act, albeit not legally binding, puts the idea into writing, that explains China’s resolute opposition.
A spokesperson for the Chinese embassy in Washington expressed Beijing’s strong dissatisfaction by Trump’s action, saying that “the relevant clauses of the Taiwan Travel Act severely violate the one-China principle,” according to a Saturday report from China’s state-run Xinhua break news agency.

U.S. President Trump has signed legislation which encourages United State officials to travel to Taiwan to meet their counterparts & vice versa, a move which has angered China.
The president signed the Taiwan Travel Act late Friday.
Taiwan’s foreign ministry says Saturday which the self-ruled island’s government would “continue to uphold the principles of mutual trust & mutual benefit to maintain close contact & communication by the U.S.”U.S. & Taiwan officials indeed travel back & forth among the 2 countries, however the visits are usually saved low profile to avoid offending China.
China considers Taiwan a wayward county & seeks the island’s reunification by China.
After Trump signed the legislation, the Chinese embassy says in a statement which clauses in the travel act “severely violate the one-China principle, the political base of the China-U.S. relationship.”China says the Taiwan Travel Act violated United State commitments not to restore direct official contacts by Taiwan which were severed while Washington switched diplomatic recognition from Taipei to Beijing in 1979.
