China has threatened retaliation if the United States completes its multi-billion weapons deal with Taiwan, according to Fox Business.
The Chinese Cabinet’s Taiwan Affairs Office issued a statement that insisted Tsai’s Democratic Progressive’s Party stop its ”plotting” with the United States to ”refuse unification through arms.”
The statement didn’t elaborate on what the consequences would be for carrying on with the deal, but the announcement is the latest display of erosion in diplomacy between China and the United States.https://tpc.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-37/html/container.html
