China lodged a diplomatic protest after the 10-minute phone conversation of the president-elect Donald Trump with the president of Taiwan Tsai Ing-wen. As it was reported earlier, Trump became the first elected president since 1979, who violated the policy of "One China" principle, introduced by the US President Jimmy Carter. According to him, Taiwan is only recognized as a part of China.

This was reported by Reuters.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry demanded an explanation in connection with the situation, stressing that the principle of "One China" is the basis for Sino-US relations.

Official explanations from Trump's team has not yet followed. However, US President-elect wrote in Twitter: "Interesting how the U.S. sells Taiwan billions of dollars of military equipment but I should not accept a congratulatory call."
