China has long strongly opposed US arms sales to Taiwan, which violate the three Sino-US joint communiqu��s and the one-China policy promised by the US.
At a regular press briefing Thursday, Foreign Ministry spokesman Kong Quan said: "The Chinese Government firmly opposes US arms sales to Taiwan, which violate established guidelines for international relations. It also contravenes the three Sino-US communiqu��s and US promises not to support Taiwan independence."
In addition, Kong Quan denounced the US's unilateral decision to punish a Chinese company that it accuses of proliferating technologies of weapons of mass destruction.
"China has a firm stance and effective measures against proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and their carriers, and is able to take immediate action when such things happen. China completely disagrees with the US action against Chinese companies and entities based on its domestic laws."
Kong Quan says this is not good for Sino-US cooperation in the field. China demands the US withdraw its wrong decisions.
