"China is strongly dissatisfied with the bill and resolutely opposes it, and has already lodged stern representations with the USA side", the Chinese Foreign Ministry's spokeswoman Hua Chunying said.

"We also sternly warn Taiwan: do not rely on foreigners to build yourselves up, or it will only draw the fire upon you", it said in a short statement.

Were such a vote to happen, China could feel it has to activate its Anti-Secession Law, which allows it to use force on Taiwan if deemed necessary to prevent the island from seceding.

"Since the United States is bound by domestic law to act on behalf of the island in that instance, it would only give substance to the observation that the descent into hell is easy".

Lee Teng-hui 李登輝, now 91 years old, told a crowd of hundreds in Taipei that a referendum - even a non-binding one, which this would be - is the "most powerful weapon" for establishing Taiwan as a "normal country", with "Taiwan" rather than "China" in its name.

Trump sparked protest from China shortly after his election in 2016 by accepting a phone call from Taiwan's leader Tsai Ing-wen, an action seen as breaking the protocol of the One China policy.

The United States has no formal ties with Taiwan but is bound by law to help it defend itself and is the island's main source of arms.

Taiwan has welcomed the USA legislation.

The office said Taiwan will proceed with working-level discussions with the USA and work to make relations between Taiwan and USA more reliable.

Mainland China issued 31 equal treatment measures it wishes to grant Taiwanese people, according to a spokesman from the State Council Taiwan Affairs Office on Wednesday.

China has carried out about 16 rounds of exercises close to Taiwan in the a year ago, according to a Taiwanese ministry.

The package of measures is inserted in the efforts of the Chinese mainland to promote relations more and more throughout the Strait, specially in favor of the peoples.

And at a news conference in Taipei, the capital, two former presidents called for a referendum in April 2019 on whether to replace the Republic of China, which has been the island's government since 1945, with a Republic of Taiwan - a move that Beijing has warned would lead to war.
