    BEIJING, Sept 17 (Reuters) - China's Foreign Ministry said on Thursday it had lodged a formal complaint with the United States about the upcoming visit of U.S. Undersecretary for Economic Affairs Keith Krach to Chinese-claimed Taiwan.

    China has lodged "stern representations" with Washington and would respond as needed depending on the situation, spokesman Wang Wenbin told reporters in Beijing, without giving details.
