China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) on Thursday expressed strong indignation and condemnation over U.S. Under Secretary of State for Economic Growth, Energy and Environment Keith Krach's visit to Taiwan.

MOFA spokesperson Wang Wenbin voiced firm opposition to the visit and urged the U.S. side to adhere to the one-China principle and the three China-U.S. joint communiques. 

"The visit violates the one-China principle and the three China-U.S. joint communiques," he said, adding that the Chinese side has lodged solemn representations to the U.S. side.

Reiterating Taiwan is an inalienable part of China, the spokesperson urged the U.S. side to immediately stop official interactions with Taiwan and deal with Taiwan-related affairs carefully.

China will make necessary responses in accordance with the development of the situation, warned Wang.

Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council on Thursday also expressed opposition to the visit.

The Chinese mainland has a firm will, full confidence and sufficient capabilities to defeat any interference by foreign forces and any secessionist attempt for "Taiwan independence" in any form, the office's spokesperson Ma Xiaoguang told reporters, urging the U.S. and the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) in Taiwan to stop any actions that may harm cross-Straits relations and jeopardize the interests of Taiwan compatriots
