The Eastern press news in Russia is hopping today with the issue of America selling arms to Taiwan! It seems that America has a bunch of little deals going on with weapons in the world and one of these deals involves Taiwan. This has got China in a bad mood and it looks like China is getting ready to slap America back if America does not get her priorities straight. (Problem is that America thinks that she has her priorities in order…)
China urged the United States on Saturday to reverse its decision to sell arms to Taiwan, Xinhua reported.
The U.S. arms sales to Taiwan undermine China’s national security as well as the peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait, Vice Foreign Minister He Yafei told the agency, stressing Beijing’s “resolute opposition” to the sales.
This was China’s sixth official warning over the issue in a week, as government officials denounced the U.S. move.
He Yafei said China had strongly protested the U.S. government’s recent decision to allow Raytheon Company and Lockheed Martin Corp. to sell weapons to Taiwan.
The sales plan was part of an arms package announced in October 2008 by the Bush administration, which included weapons and equipment such as Patriot III anti-missile systems.
He said the Taiwan issue was “the most important and sensitive issue at the core of Sino-U.S. relations.”
BEIJING, January 9 (RIA Novosti)
This is a soft article about the issue and if you have a desire look at any Chinese articles on this subject. They are getting real tired of American interference in this side of the world…
