US approves $2.2bn Taiwan arms sale despite Chinese ire

The US State Department has approved a potential arms sale to Taiwan, estimated to be worth $2.2bn (£1.76bn), the Pentagon said.
The deal is for 108 Abrams tanks, 250 Stinger missiles and related equipment.

China's foreign ministry has called on the US to "immediately cancel" the proposed sale.

Spokesman Geng Shuang said the action "grossly interferes in China's internal affairs and undermines China's sovereignty and security interests".

He also accused the US of violating the One China policy, under which the US recognises and has only formal ties with China and not Taiwan.

China regards Taiwan as part of its territory which should be reunited with the mainland, by force if necessary.

2. I actually agree with this

Almost all Taiwanese people donít want to be a part of China. Look at what China is doing to Hong Kong.
