China said it strongly opposes the sale of weapons by the United States to Taiwan. It is reported that the Chinese side considers the Taiwan issue a red line in China-US relations that ‘cannot be crossed’.

According to the Defence Ministry’s representative, the PRC ‘will take decisive and vigorous measures to protect its national sovereignty and territorial integrity’. Zhang Xiaogang clarified that Washington has recently ‘resorted to major manipulations related to Taiwan’ through weapon deliveries and by providing military assistance in an attempt to ‘fuel the flames of Taiwanese independence’.
