China says seriously concerned about US arms sales to Taiwan

BEIJING, June 6 (Reuters) - China’s Foreign Ministry said on Thursday it is seriously concerned about U.S. arms sales to self-ruled Taiwan, after a source told Reuters that Washington was planning a $2 billion weapons sale to the island China claims as its own.

China urges the United States to stop arms sales to Taiwan to avoid harming bilateral relations, ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told a daily news briefing in Beijing. (Reporting by Cate Cadell; Writing by Ben Blanchard; editing by Darren Schuettler)
