BEIJING (Reuters) - Those who seek to damage the “one China” principle and harm China’s core interests are “lifting a rock only to drop it on their feet”, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Monday, in comments carried on the Foreign Ministry’s website.

The ministry said he make the remark in Switzerland when asked by a reporter about a telephone call between U.S. President-elect Donald Trump and Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen.
