China says it firmly opposes U.S. arms sale to Taiwan

HONG KONG (Reuters) - China’s defence ministry said on Wednesday it firmly opposed a new U.S. arms sale to Taiwan as this would further damage the stability of cross-strait relations as well as Sino-U.S. ties.

The U.S. State Department said last week that it had approved a $620 million (491.44 million pounds) upgrade package for Patriot surface-to-air missles to Taiwan.
