China is adamant to crush Taiwan’s independence by any means as the Chinese Defense Minister Wei echoed that PLA will not hesitate in crushing any ‘Taiwan independence’ moves while talking to US defence secretary Lloyd Austin.

Meanwhile, it also slammed US arms sales and military-technical support to Taiwan considering it a grave undermining of China’s sovereignty and security interests, as well as the peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait. The comments come on US’ approval on Wednesday of up to $120 million worth of naval ship spare parts and related technical support to Taiwan.

The US has seriously violated the one-China principle and the three China-US Joint Communiqués, especially the August 17 Communiqués, said Tan Kefei, a spokesperson at China’s Ministry of National Defense, urging the US to immediately cancel the arms sales to the Taiwan region, cut their military ties and stop sending the wrong signal to “Taiwan independence” secessionist forces before further harm is done to China-US relations.

Tan warned the island’s Democratic Progressive Party and certain external forces of the firm and robust measures the People’s Liberation Army will take to resolutely safeguard China’s sovereignty and security interests.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry and the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council have also lashed out at the possible arms sales from the US, urging Washington to stop playing with fire over the Taiwan question. Observers warned that such military support could only worsen the situation in the Taiwan Straits instead of enhancing the island’s combat preparedness. The sale come after the US president earlier signalled a change in US policy on Taiwan of supporting unilaterally with the military if China attacks it. Both powers have been at odds for the last decade with both sides accusing one another of double game.

Meanwhile, Russia-Ukraine conflict has increased the intensity of China-Taiwan conflict as both are involved in decades-old dispute
