Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Jiang Yu said on Thursday that the Chinese government hopes the United States will be cautious while operating in the Taiwan Straits, a highly sensitive region.

The remarks were made while answering media questions about the visit of Timothy Keating, Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. Pacific Command.

Jiang said she hopes the U.S. side would adhere to the promises it had made on the Taiwan issue and safeguard peace and stability across the Taiwan Straits and the overall situation of China-U.S. relations with concrete actions.

Keating reaffirmed the United States' adherence to the one-China policy during his visit, which the Chinese side appreciated, Jiang said.

She added that the stable and healthy development of China-U.S. relations conformed to the basic benefits of the two countries and was conducive to the peace and stability of the Asian-Pacific region and the whole world.

Keating ended his four-day tour in China after leaving Guangzhou on Wednesday afternoon. This was his second visit to China since he was appointed commander-in-chief of the U.S. Pacific Command.
