"The Taiwan question concerns China's sovereignty, territorial integrity and core interests. China has firm resolve in upholding its sovereignty and security," said Wang.
The Chinese side has proposed that the two countries draw up three lists respectively on cooperation, dialogue and issues that need proper management, and draw up a road-map for future interactions, he added.
In the meantime, China will firmly defend its sovereignty, security and development interests, because this is a legitimate right inherent in China being an independent sovereign state, Wang stressed.

BEIJING, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Wednesday the Chinese side is ready to enter into candid, effective consultation with the U.S. side and make cool-headed and sensible response to the impulsive moves and anxiety of the U.S. side.
"I want to stress that many Chinese companies subject to U.S. unilateral sanctions are innocent, who just provide safe technologies and products," Wang said, adding that not a single cybersecurity incident like those revealed by Edward Snowden or WikiLeaks has ever occurred, and not a single tapping or surveillance operation like PRISM, Equation Group or Echelon has taken place.
