China to sanction US firms selling Taiwan arms

BEIJING, Jan 30 (Reuters) - China will put sanctions on U.S. firms which sell weapons to Taiwan, the Foreign Ministry said on Saturday, adding the arms sale would affect Sino-US cooperation on major international issues.

The official Xinhua news agency, citing China’s Taiwan Affairs Office, added that the arms sale would only “fan the flames” of Taiwan independence and put obstacles in the path of peaceful cross-Strait development. (Reporting by Chris Buckley and Ben Blanchard; Editing by Sanjeev Miglani)
