Taipei, Jan. 8 (CNA) A senior White House official on Monday called on China to stop its coercion of Taiwan and resume dialogue with Taiwan's government after Chinese President Xi Jinping  recently reasserted China's right to use force against Taiwan.

"Beijing should stop its coercion & resume dialog w/ the democratically-elected administration on Taiwan," Garrett Marquis, spokesperson of the National Security Council under the White House, said in a tweet Monday.

In a previous tweet earlier the same day, Marquis reiterated Washington's opposition to any threat or use of force to get the people of Taiwan to act against their will.

"Any resolution of Cross-Strait differences must be peaceful and based on the will of the ppl on both sides," it said.

Asked to comment, Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) deputy spokesperson Joanne Ou  expressed Taiwan's appreciation for the tweets, which showed support for the country's democratic system and its people.

Xi's warning was delivered on Jan. 2 during his address in commemoration of the 40th anniversary of China's "Message to Compatriots in Taiwan."

Xi said in his speech that China is willing to talk with any party in Taiwan to push forward the process of peaceful unification on the basis of the "one China principle."

However, "we make no promise to renounce the use of force and reserve the option of taking all necessary means" to serve the end, Xi said.

He said China will not target compatriots in Taiwan but the interference of external forces as well as the very small number of Taiwan independence activists.
