 Taiwans Defense Department said that two of the three arms sales plans approved by the US side can reach the mainland coast responded by the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council


We have firm will, full confidence and sufficient ability to safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity. The DPP authorities continue to escalate the independence provocation, which is bound to be a dead end in the end.

The US State Council approved US $1.8 billion in arms sales to Taiwan. The Ministry of defense, the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council and the Ministry of foreign affairs responded one after another!

According to reports, the defense security cooperation agency of the U.S. Department of Defense said on October 21 that the U.S. State Department approved the sale of weapons and equipment totalling more than 1.8 billion US dollars to Taiwan. On October 22, the Ministry of national defense, the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council and the Ministry of foreign affairs responded one after another.

According to the US Department of defense, the total sales of weapons and equipment exceeded 1.8 billion US dollars. What is your comment?

A: the US arms sales to Taiwan seriously violate the one China principle and the provisions of the three Sino US joint communiques, especially the provisions of the August 17 communique, seriously interfere in Chinas internal affairs, seriously damage Chinas sovereignty and security interests, and seriously undermine the relations between the two armed forces of China and the United States and peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait. China firmly opposes this.

The Taiwan issue concerns Chinas sovereignty and territorial integrity as well as Chinas core interests. China strongly urges the US side to immediately cancel its arms sales plan to Taiwan, stop us Taiwan military ties, and prudently handle Taiwan related issues, so as not to cause serious consequences to Sino US military relations and peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait. If the United States ignores the basic norms of international relations, reneges on its word and breaks its promise, it will resolutely fight back.

[US government approves US $1.8 billion in arms sales to Taiwan, response from National Taiwan Affairs Office

Reporter: the U.S. government has just announced that it has approved the sale of weapons worth about $1.8 billion to Taiwan. Whats your comment on this?

Zhu Fenglian said in this regard that we have always firmly opposed US arms sales to Taiwan. The US side should earnestly abide by the one China principle and the provisions of the three Sino US joint communiques, especially the August 17 communique, and stop all arms sales to Taiwan. The DPP authorities purchase weapons from the United States in an attempt to reject reunification with force and engage in independence provocation. This will only seriously undermine the peace and stability of the Taiwan Strait and bring serious disasters to the people of Taiwan. We warn the DPP authorities to stop all forms of ties with the United States and not to go further and further on the Taiwan independence impasse.

Zhao Lijian stressed that the US arms sales to Taiwan have seriously violated the one China principle and the three Sino US joint communiques, especially the provisions of the 817 Communique, seriously interfered in Chinas internal affairs, seriously damaged Chinas sovereignty and security interests, sent a serious wrong signal to the separatist forces for Taiwan independence, and seriously damaged Sino US relations and peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait. China firmly opposes this, and we urge the US side to fully recognize the serious harm of the US arms sales to Taiwan issue, abide by the one China principle and the provisions of the three Sino US joint communiques, stop arms sales to Taiwan and military ties between the United States and Taiwan, and cancel the relevant arms sales plan to Taiwan, so as to avoid further damage to Sino US relations and peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait. China will make proper and necessary response according to the development of the situation.

Taiwan said it was unwilling to carry out arms race with the Chinese mainland: Zhao Lijian: then we should do so.

Zhao Lijian: if they dont want to import weapons and equipment, they should do what they say, not say one set, do one set!

Related report: how will China respond to US arms sales to Taiwan again? Expert: I believe we will fight back, but the timing will be decided by China

[Global Times - global network reporter Guo Yuandan] at the regular press conference of the foreign ministry on the afternoon of 22, in response to the three latest arms sales plans approved by the US side to Taiwan, foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said that China would make proper and necessary response according to the development of the situation. Relevant experts told the global times that they believed that China would definitely make a counterattack, but the timing of counterattack would not follow the pace of the US side, but China would make its own judgment and decision.

The U.S. State Department has approved three plans to sell weapons to Taiwan. The defense security cooperation agency informed the Congress on the 21st and carried out a notification to Congress procedure. It is reported that the case is expected to take effect in a month.

In this regard, Zhao Lijian reiterated that the US arms sales to Taiwan seriously violate the one China principle and the three Sino US joint communiques, especially the provisions of the 817 Communique, seriously interferes in Chinas internal affairs, seriously damages Chinas sovereignty and security interests, and sends a serious wrong signal to the Taiwan independence separatist forces, which has seriously damaged Sino US relations and peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait. Zhao Lijian once again stressed that China will make proper and necessary response according to the development of the situation.

In response, Zhao Lijian also mentioned that China will make proper and necessary response to the US sides listing of six Chinese media agencies in the United States as foreign missions.

Li Haidong stressed that China hopes to eventually establish a mutually beneficial and win-win relationship of stability, coordination and cooperation with the United States. However, Chinas definition of Sino US relations is not the same as that of the United States. The United States focuses on geopolitical rivalry and considers the relationship between the two countries as a strategic competitor relationship. Therefore, the United States is a troublemaker in Sino US relations, which is also a major difference between the two sides in handling Sino US relations.

According to reports, the weapons involved in the three arms sales cases with a total value of $1811 million are: m142 high mobility rocket launcher system, agm-84h extended range defense area to ground attack missile, and ms-110 detection pod. The weapons are produced by Lockheed Martin and Boeing respectively.

Prior to this, China has repeatedly imposed sanctions on US enterprises involved in arms sales to Taiwan. For example, after the US State Council approved in July to provide Taiwan with a total price of US $620 million, China decided to take necessary measures to impose sanctions on Lockheed Martin, the main contractor of the arms sales. In addition, in July 2019, the United States announced a weapons sales plan worth about US $2.22 billion. In order to safeguard national interests, China imposed sanctions on US enterprises involved in the arms sales to Taiwan. So will China impose sanctions on Boeing this time?

Li Haidong believes that Boeing and Lockheed Martin are different. Lockheed Martin has closer ties with the US arms sales to Taiwan. Boeing is more closely related to the civil aircraft market. Whether and how sanctions should be imposed depends on the pertinence and effectiveness of sanctions. He suggested that even if sanctions are needed, they should be carried out after the US election results are clear So as to ensure the maximum effect of sanctions and maintain flexibility in handling relations with the United States.
