China to Ban Doing Business with Firms Selling Weapons to Taiwan

China considers Taiwan its sovereign territory, treating it as a breakaway province to be eventually reunited with the mainland.

Its ruling authorities call incursions by US warships in the Taiwan Strait provocative – the 110 mile-wide waterway separating Taiwan from the mainland.

They consider US arms sales to Taiwan a hostile act.

China’s Defense Minister Wei Fenghe earlier was unequivocal, saying the nation’s military will “firmly defend (China’s) national sovereignty, security and developmental interest.”

Beijing expressed outrage over the Trump regime’s approval to sell about $2.2 billion worth weapons to Taiwan, including Abrams tanks, Hercules armored vehicles, heavy equipment transporters, and Stinger anti-aircraft missiles.

US/Taiwan Business Council head Rupert Hammond said the weapons and equipment “will provide the Taiwan army with a modern capability to deter” an alleged Chinese threat to Taiwan — ignoring the very real one Washington poses to Beijing politically, economically, financially and militarily.
