In response to the latest round of US arms sales to Taiwan, the Chinese MFA invited the United States to cancel the proposed deal on Thursday.

“We call on the US side to recognize the serious harm caused by the arms sale to Taiwan and adhere to the ‘One China’ policy and the China-US three joint communique, halt military communications with Taiwan and cancel related plans on arms sale to Taiwan,” Zhao Lijian, Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman, said during a regular press briefing.

Zhao’s comments came in response to the US State Department’s decision to accept the proposed sale of three weapons systems to Taiwan, that cost $1.8 billion, on Wednesday.

Zhao added that China would make necessary responses in accordance with the development of the situation.

Tensions across the Taiwan Strait escalated recently after the Trump administration stepped up its promise with local authorities in Taiwan.
