BEIJING (Reuters) - China said Taiwan should not be so suspicious of its intentions on Wednesday after Taipei protested against Beijing's decision to open new domestic commercial air routes over the Taiwan Strait which separates the two diplomatic rivals.

The Taiwan Affairs Office of China's State Council said Taiwan must be "more understanding and less suspicious" of the four routes, state media said. Taiwan said on Tuesday it would step up air surveillance patrols in the Taiwan Strait in response "if necessary".
