The Chinese mainland opposes any form of official or military contact between the United States and Taiwan, a spokesman for the State Council Taiwan Affairs Office said Wednesday.

The Chinese mainland firmly objects to US arms sales to Taiwan under any pretext, An Fengshan said.

The one-China principle is the political foundation of the China-US relationship and the fundamental guideline for handling issues regarding Taiwan for the two countries, An said.

When asked about some Taiwan media stirring up trouble following remarks by members of a US think tank, An said some "unscrupulous" people from the island acted actively as the tools of other countries at the cost of peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait and the wellbeing of people on both sides.

An called on both sides across the Strait to work hand in hand to create brilliance.

China on Wednesday just announced new measures which would allow Taiwanese compatriots to enroll in 53 professional and technical occupation qualification examinations, which push equal treatment with their mainland counterparts in investments and economic cooperation forward. 

The measures also grant the people of Taiwan equal treatment when studying, working and living on the mainland.
