World Bulletin / News Desk

The White House says they have spoken with Chinese leadership following President-elect Donald Trump's call with Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen. 

Sky News reports that federal officials called to reassure the country that the US still adheres to the "One China" policy, which does not recognise Taiwan as its own sovereign nation. 

Senior U.S. national security officials spoke with their Chinese counterparts over the weekend “to reiterate and clarify the continued commitment of the United States to our longstanding One China policy,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest said.
