Beijing, Oct 22 (Prensa Latina) China on Thursday noted that it will proceed with countermeasures against the decision made by the United States to sell weapons to Taiwan and to appoint six other media organizations as diplomatic missions.
Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Zhao Lijian described as interference in the country's internal affairs Washington's decision to supply state-of-the-art weapons worth 1.8 billion dollars to Taipei.
He noted that Washington is sending a wrong signal to the island, damaging China's interests and national security, and endangering bilateral ties, peace and stability in the Strait of Taiwan.
Beijing will give a consequent response depending on how the situation evolves, the spokesman added. [FULL STORY]
