Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian said on Wednesday that the arms sale deal has severely encroached upon China’s sovereignty, security and development interests, damaged China-US relations and endangered peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait.

China urges the U.S. side to earnestly abide by the one-China principle and the three China-U.S. joint communiques, cease arms sales and military interactions with Taiwan.
