China was reportedly angered by a meeting of U.S. and Taiwanese security officials, the

Reuters reports Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang told a daily news briefing that Beijing is “extremely dissatisfied and resolutely opposed” to the meeting.
The response comes after Taiwan’s foreign affairs ministry confirmed a meeting earlier this month between Taiwan’s national security chief, David Lee, and White House national security adviser John Bolton.
Kang added that China is against any type of official exchanges between the U.S. and Taiwan, a country Beijing does not officially recognize. [FULL STORY]
