China’s Ambassador to the US expressed dissatisfaction with Washington’s sale of weapons to Taiwan
MOSCOW, 30 Jul — RIA Novosti. China’s Ambassador to Washington said that the sale of weapons to Taiwan, and sanctions against Chinese companies undermine bilateral relations, reports Reuters.

On the same day, the United States included in the sanctions list several Chinese companies, accusing them of ties with the DPRK.
“All these actions — sanctions against Chinese companies, and especially arms sales to Taiwan is without a doubt negatively affect the mutual trust between the two sides, as contrary to the spirit of the summit in Florida,” — said the Chinese diplomat Cui Tiankai.
The meeting of U.S. President Donald trump and the President of China, XI Jinping, was held in early April in the personal residence of the American leader in Mar-a-Lago.
