Original title: Ren Guoqiang, spokesman of the Ministry of defense, asked reporters about the sale of weapons to Taiwan by the United States.
Q: According to media reports, the United States sells about $330 million of weapons and equipment to Taiwan, including fighter equipment accessories and related support systems. What is the Chinese Army's comment on this?
A: On September 25, the U.S. government informed Congress of its decision to sell arms and equipment to Taiwan totaling about $330 million. The Chinese Army expressed strong dissatisfaction and resolute opposition to the United States and made solemn representations to the United States.
Taiwan is a part of China, and the one-China principle is the political basis of Sino-US relations. We firmly oppose the sale of Taiwan weapons by the United States. The actions of the United States seriously violate the one-China principle and the provisions of the three Sino-US joint communiques, interfere in China's internal affairs, damage China's sovereignty and security interests, and seriously damage Sino-US military relations and peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait.
The determination of the Chinese army to safeguard state sovereignty and territorial integrity is unwavering. We strongly urge the US side to abide by the one-China principle and the provisions of the three Sino-US joint communiques, immediately cancel the arms sales to Taiwan, stop the arms sales to Taiwan and the US-Taiwan military contacts, so as to avoid further damage to Sino-US military relations and the peace and stability of the Taiwan Strait.
