Beijing to impose sanctions on US firms involved in US$2.2 billion Taiwan arms deal

Beijing to impose sanctions on US firms involved in US$2.2 billion Taiwan arms deal

Teddy Ng July 12 SCMP

Beijing said on Friday it will issue sanctions against the US companies involved in the latest arms sale to Taiwan, as tensions between China and the United States continue to rise.

The foreign ministry said in a brief statement that the move by Washington had violated China’s territorial sovereignty and national security.

“To protect our national interest, China will impose sanctions on the US companies involved in the arms sale,” ministry spokesman Geng Shuang was quoted as saying.

Beijing has made repeated calls to the US for it to stop engaging in military exchanges with Taiwan, with the latest remarks coming after Washington on Monday approved the sale of US$2.2 billion worth of military equipment to the self-ruled island.

1. from Reuters article on same topic

The U.S. State Department declined to comment and the U.S. firms involved in the Taiwan arms deal did not immediately respond. It was unclear what, if any, impact the Chinese move might have as U.S. defense contractors have been barred from dealings with Beijing since the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre.
