China on Monday reiterated its firm opposition to US arm sales to Taiwan, amid reports that Donald Trump's administration is preparing a large shipment of advanced weaponry for the self-ruling island.

"China firmly opposes US arms sales to Taiwan, this is consistent and clear-cut," foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told a regular press briefing.

"We hope the US side fully recognises the high sensitivity and serious harmfulness of its sales to Taiwan."

She called on Washington to abide by the One-China policy and "cease Taiwan arm sales" in order to preserve Sino-US relations and peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait.

2. Considering how China is trying to strong arm its way into claiming

territory from a number of other countries in the South China Sea China doesnt have much room to grumble imo.
Now if the US was providing nukes to Taiwan I could understand being pissed but otherwise China has no reason to be afraid as China can easily fend off any other kind of attack that Taiwan might launch.
