China on Monday reiterated its firm opposition to US arm sales to Taiwan, amid reports that Donald Trump's administration is preparing a large shipment of advanced weaponry for the self-ruling island.
China firmly opposes US arms sales to Taiwan, this is consistent and clear-cut, foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told a regular press briefing. We hope the US side fully recognizes the high sensitivity and serious harmfulness of its sales to Taiwan. She called on Washington to abide by the One-China policy and cease Taiwan arm sales in order to preserve Sino-US relations and peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait. The comments, which came one day after US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson ended a visit to Beijing, followed reports in US media that Trump's government was preparing a large-scale arms package for Taiwan.
