BEIJING, Oct. 22 (Xinhua) -- A Chinese mainland spokesperson Thursday voiced firm opposition to U.S. arms sales to China's Taiwan region, urging the U.S. side to earnestly abide by the one-China principle and the three China-U.S. joint communiques, especially the August 17 Communique, and cease all arms sales to Taiwan.

Zhu Fenglian, a spokesperson for the State Council Taiwan Affairs Office, made the remarks when responding to reports that the U.S. government has approved arms sales plans worth 1.8 billion U.S. dollars to the island.

The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) authority in Taiwan will severely undermine peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait and bring grave suffering to people in Taiwan through its arms purchases from the United States in its attempts to count on military force to resist reunification and seek "Taiwan independence," Zhu said.

The DPP authority must stop all collusion with the U.S. side and not go further down on the dead-end path of seeking "Taiwan independence," Zhu said.
