China on Saturday announced that it has lodged a formal protest with the United States over the arms sales to Taiwan.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said the United States was pushing ahead with the sale of F-16V fighter jets to Taiwan in a deal valued at $ 8 billion.

The US side has seriously violated the one-China principle and the three Sino-US joint communiques, said Ying, stressing that Washington has interfered in China’s internal affairs and damaged China’s sovereignty and security interests.

Taiwan issue affects China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity as well as China’s core interests, she said, calling on the United States to realize the great sensitivity and harmful character of the relevant issue, adhere to the one-China principle and the three Sino-US joint communiques.

Ying urged the United States to stop arms sales and military contacts with Taiwan, noting that the Chinese side will have to take countermeasures and Washington will be responsible for all the consequences.
