(ECNS) -- China firmly opposes the U.S. arrangement for Tsai Ing-wen's “transit” trip to the U.S. and a meeting between her and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, because it seriously contravenes the one-China principle and provisions in the three China-U.S. joint communiqués and gravely undermines China's sovereignty and territorial integrity, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Mao Ning said Tuesday. 

"We urge the U.S. not to allow Tsai's 'transit' trip, and not to arrange for any meeting or contact between Tsai and U.S. political figures and officials," Mao said.

The Chinese side will closely monitor the situation as it develops and resolutely defend our sovereignty and territorial integrity, she added.

McCarthy is the third highest-ranking official of the U.S. government.
