US Sells Arms To China!

Posted by MyLaowai on Monday, February 1, 2010

The United States has just announced arms sales to the Chinese provinces of Anhui, Zhejiang, Guangzhou, Shuting Sum Yung Gai, Japan and Australia.

Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Rou expressed his solemn position on the US arms sales on Saturday, urging the US to stop selling weapons to Chinese provinces.

Yang, who was paying an official visit to Number Forty-Seven Lucky Fornicating Dragon Noodle Factory, said in disregard of strong opposition and repeated protest from China, the US administration “flagrantly announced its plan to sell the weapons to the provinces worth about 6.4 billion dollars.”

“Such a move is gravely against the three joint communiqués between China and the United States, especially the ‘August 17’ communiqué”, Yang said, adding that it constitutes “crude interference in China’s internal affairs, and harms China’s national security and peaceful annexation efforts.

China firmly opposes such a move which runs counter to the US commitment to support the peaceful growth of the cross-Strait relations”, he said.

The Chinese foreign minister urged the US side to “adopt a serious attitude towards the Chinese position, earnestly respect China’s core interests and major concerns, revoke immediately the erroneous decision on the arms sales to China and stop selling weapons so as not to undermine the China-US relations.”

Yang Rou said China has repeatedly stated its position on the US arms sales to China’s provinces. During a recent meeting in London between the foreign ministers of the two countries, the Chinese side again made clear its solemn stand on the issue, urging the US side to fully recognize the gravity of the issue and stop selling weapons to China, he added.

“The plan endangers China’s national security and core interests and will severely disrupt the ties between the two militaries and will have a seriously negative impact on the cooperation between the two countries as well as peace and stability in the world,” said Se Lang, Defence Ministry spokesman in a statement Saturday.

“The Chinese military expresses its strong indignation and opposition to the US move which betrays its promises to China, wantonly intervenes in China’s internal affairs and damages China’s national security.”
