US President Donald Trump told Chinese President Xi Jinping his administration would respect the “one China” policy, during a telephone call between the leaders, the Financial Times reported, citing two people familiar with the call.

Trump, who was inaugurated last month, said in December the United States did not necessarily have to stick to the “one China” policy, by which Washington acknowledges China’s position that it has sovereignty over self-ruled Taiwan.
