The United States has apologized for mistakenly identifying Chinese President Xi Jinping as the leader of Taiwan in a statement, China's Foreign Ministry said Monday.
Xi Jinping is the president of the People's Republic of China. Chinese scholars said the error shows a lack of competence in the White House that is not conducive to healthy US-China relations.
"The U.S. side has expressed that they are sorry for this technical error and they have made a correction", Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said of the misidentification during a regular news briefing Monday.
Still, it was likely to have ruffled feathers in Beijing since China claims self-ruled Taiwan as part of its territory, to be brought back into the fold by force if necessary.
The President of Taiwan is Tsai Ing-wen, who is considered to be a competitor to Xi Jinping.
Trump first ruffled feathers in Beijing after his November election victory, when the president-elect accepted a congratulatory phone call from Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen, despite the United States having broken off relations with the island in 1979.

Beijing and Washington have agreed to hold the first round of comprehensive economic dialogue on July 19, one of four high-level dialogue mechanisms initiated during the Mar-a-Lago meeting between Xi and Trump in April.
Xi, striking a more sober note than Trump, said "there is a lot of work needed to be done" on the "sensitive issues [that] remain in the China-U.S. relationship".
