Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang made the comments on Tuesday in response to the United States' planned sales of weapons worth 2.22 billion U.S. dollars to Taiwan.

 
Geng said, the U.S. arms sales to Taiwan severely violate international law, the basic norms governing international relations, the one-China principle and the three China-U.S. joint communiques.
 
"China urges the United States to honor its commitment to the one-China principle and the three China-U.S. joint communiques, immediately withdraw the aforementioned planned arms sales to and sever military ties with Taiwan to avoid further damage to bilateral relations and peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait."
 
Geng said the Chinese side is strongly dissatisfied with and firmly opposes such actions, and have lodged solemn representations with the U.S. side.
