China had been angered by earlier remarks by Mr. Trump, questioning Beijing's sovereignty over Taiwan under the one-China principle.
If his first phone call with Xi as US President is any indication, then President Trump would appear to be taking a much softer tone toward China than he did during his presidential campaign and directly following his election.
While Trump honored the policy, statements from both sides did not mention the other contentious issues of trade and the South China Sea or reports of a near-miss between Chinese and USA aircrafts in the disputed territory.
Mr Wilder added: "By reasserting the commitment to the one China policy, President Trump opens the ground for a constructive dialogue with Beijing on the hard but resolvable issues of rebalancing the trading relationship that has tilted in Beijing's favour". Trump had previously been critical of China and their trade policies, sparking fears of a large scale trade confrontation. The letter was hand delivered by Mike Flynn: "As a gesture of conciliation, Flynn and his deputy, K.T. McFarland, hand-delivered the letter to China's ambassador to the United States, Cui Tiankai". Both sides absolutely can become very good cooperative partners, ' Xi said.
The move has been seen by some as a backtrack from remarks made by Trump in December, in which he suggested that US support for the policy might be contingent on a trade deal with Beijing.
