China has recently imposed sanctions on five US arms manufacturers due to their involvement in selling weapons to Taiwan.

Beijing asserts that the autonomous island is a constituent part of its national territory and has not excluded the possibility of employing military force to accomplish its objectives, whereas the United States is obliged by legislation to furnish Taiwan with the necessary resources to protect itself.

The sanctions come ahead of Taiwan’s January 13 presidential and parliamentary elections, which China has claimed are a choice between war and peace.

The US State Department recently approved a $300m arms package to enhance Taipei’s joint battle command and control system. This move has prompted Beijing to warn against taking unspecified “countermeasures” against the companies involved.

Xi clearly told Biden that Taiwan is part of China.
