China on Monday demanded the United States to observe its commitment on the Taiwan issue and not to send the wrong signal to the forces of the "Taiwan Independence".
"We demand the US not to allow Chen Shui-bian to engage in any separatist activities of 'Taiwan Independence' by using US territory," said Foreign Ministry spokesperson Jiang Yu.
Jiang made the remarks when asked to comment on Chen Shui-bian's stopover in Alaska on January 13, according to a press release by the Foreign Ministry.
She said China had resolutely opposed any country to have any official contact with the Taiwan's authorities.
"Chen Shui-bian is a destroyer of peace and stability of the Taiwan Straits and a troublemaker of Sino-US relations," she added.
