Q: According to media reports, the US State Department approved the sale of military communications equipment worth about US$280 million to Taiwan on December 7 local time. Does the spokesperson have any comments on this?
Answer: The US arms sales to the Taiwan region seriously violated international law and basic norms of international relations, seriously violated the one-China principle and the three Sino-US joint communiqués, especially the provisions of the “August 17” communiqué.

Taiwan is an inalienable part of China. The Taiwan issue concerns China’s core interests and no foreign interference is allowed. Any attempt by the US to control China with Taiwan is futile.
We strongly urge the United States to abide by the one-China principle and the provisions of the three Sino-US joint communiqués, immediately cancel the arms sales to Taiwan, and stop arms sales to Taiwan and military ties between the United States and Taiwan, so as not to further the peace and stability of the Taiwan Strait and the relations between the two countries and the two militaries. damage.
The Chinese People’s Liberation Army is confident and capable of resolutely defeating any attempt to split the motherland and firmly defending the sovereignty, security and territorial integrity of the motherland.
