|Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Geng Shuang's Remarks on Chinese Government's Sanctions on US Enterprises Involved in Arms Sale to Taiwan|
Q: The US recently announced its plan to sell $2.22 billion worth of arms to Taiwan. It is said that China will impose sanctions on relevant US enterprises. Can you confirm that?
A: The US arms sales to Taiwan constitute a serious violation of international law and the basic norms governing international relations. This is a serious violation of the one-China principle and the three China-US Joint Communiques. It also undermines China's sovereignty and national security. To safeguard our national interests, China will impose sanctions on the US enterprises involved in the above-mentioned arms sale to Taiwan.
