US sanctions Chinese bank, plans to sell $1.4bn worth of arms to Taiwan

The Trump administration plans to sell Taiwan just over $1.4 billion in weapons, while China's ambassador to the US has reportedly said the deal goes against the "spirit" of talks between President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping.

"And all these actions – sanctions against Chinese companies and especially arms sales to Taiwan – will certainly undermine the mutual confidence between the two sides and runs counter to the spirit of the Mar-a-Lago summit," said Ambassador Cui Tiankai, speaking to reporters at an embassy reception in Washington.
