Tancredo bill on Taiwan angers China
By The Denver Post

Rep. Tom Tancredo seems to always be able to cause a stir, even if he has to go halfway around the world to do it. Few on this side of the Pacific took much notice last week when the Littleton Republican introduced a bill to end the United States' 'one China' policy and resume normal diplomatic relations with Taiwan.

But his move was front-page news in Asia. According to the Xinhua Financial Network, the Chinese government 'angrily condemned' Tancredo's bill and demanded that the Bush administration block the bill. The Xinhua network is affiliated with the official Chinese news agency with a slightly different name.

'This is a gross interference in China's internal affairs and sends a mistaken signal to Taiwan independence forces,' foreign ministry spokesman Kong Quan was quoted as saying by Xinhua. 'The Chinese side expresses its strong dissatisfaction and staunch opposition to this.'"
