'Washington sending arms to Taiwan': China halts arms control talks with US

China on Wednesday said it has suspended the crucial arms control and non-proliferation talks with the US, accusing Washington of continuing arms sales to Taiwan. Announcing this, Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Lin Jian said the US continued sales of weapons to self-ruled Taiwan, which China claims as a rebel province that must be reunified with the mainland, even by force. He said that despite Beijing's opposition, the US actions had severely damaged the political atmosphere necessary for continued arms control consultations between the two sides. China has decided to suspend talks with the US on holding a new round of arms control and non-proliferation consultations, Lin told a media briefing here. The responsibility for this situation lies entirely with the US, he said, squarely blaming Washington for the disruption of the talks. China was willing to maintain communication with the US on the issue but only on the condition that the US must respect China's core interests and

Taiwan ups alertness after detecting test-firing by China's missile unit

Taiwan's Defence Ministry said Saturday it was monitoring waves of test-firing by China's missile unit in a region more than 1,600 kilometres (1,000 miles) from the self-ruled island and that its air force stepped up its alertness. China views the democratic island as a breakaway province that should be reunified with the mainland. According to Taiwan's military news agency, the ministry had detected multiple waves of test-firing operations by China's Rocket Force in Inner Mongolia on Saturday. It did not give details on the tests taken by the force, which takes charge of China's arsenal of missiles. It is not immediately clear whether the tests were related to China's harassment of Taiwan. In recent years, China has ramped up its military activities around the island, which is ruled by the Democratic Progressive Party. In May, Taiwan's newly elected President Lai Ching-te said in his inauguration speech that he wants peace with China and urged it to stop its military threats and .
