Information Agency Reuters reports that Washington made a decision on the sale of arms to Taiwan. The administration of the President of the United States officially notified representatives of Congress about this decision. Reports about it RIA News. We are talking about the sale of anti-tank missiles, attack aircraft and two American frigates totaling more than 1,8 billion.


The United States ignored the protests of China and decided to sell military equipment to Taiwan


China has reacted negatively to such a decision by US officials. Most recently held historical a meeting between the authorities of China and Taiwan, which gave rise to talk about the possibility of establishing full-fledged diplomatic relations between Beijing and Taipei. After the decision of the American authorities to implement weapons for the Taiwanese army in Beijing, they believe that this is throwing relations to the previous level. Recall that official Beijing does not recognize Taiwan as an independent state.

At the same time, in Washington itself, they have already managed to declare that the sale of arms to Taiwan "should in no way affect relations with China." At the US State Department, they say that this step is in no way aimed at somehow ignoring the territorial integrity of China. It should be noted that the USA Taiwan is an independent state that recognizes and maintains relations at the interstate level.

China has said that US actions may affect Sino-US relations.

      Let them sell. Soon, "anti-tank missiles, attack aircraft and two American frigates totaling more than $ 1,8 billion," like the rest of the Chiang Kai-shek weapons, will be armed with the PLA. The example of Crimea is contagious.

        “America’s normal relations between Taiwan and China are not beneficial, so they will do everything possible and not possible against this.” Moreover, most of the people of Taiwan are AGAINST reunification. So, where is the "example of the Crimea ..."

            No - The Chinese are not weak

            They just endure - t they have to endure another years 10 = 15 maximum

            While they can be said to be “shamelessly” COVERED by Russia and Iran, and so on, there isn’t so far China has the strength to openly challenge

            but it’s still a matter of time — anyway, the 21 century is a century of confrontation between China and the West — and the Chinese simply gain time at the expense of us, Eurasia, but then they become the main thorn in the West. Fed and USA

            Geopolitics and its laws cannot be avoided - China and the USA will stand against each other - and the Chinese use us all as satellites

          "The US ignored China's protests and decided to sell military equipment to Taiwan"

          From the point of view of Russia, this is not even bad (although it is clear that there is little good), I explain that the United States puts (in its actions) China on the same team with Russia, their rival is the United States. "Jump off", at a crucial moment, China will be "not on hand" ....

    China has said that US actions may affect Sino-US relations.
    And now China would be just 1,8 lard dollars more fun for America to pay - and so every time. A trifle, of course, for America — they will print it in a couple of hours, but here, like a son’s asshole, it’s not strength that matters, but morality. To become insulted and realized that he was punished.

      I think the price in the contract, the States offered at times underestimated, so Taiwan and pecked.
      But the States are not sorry, the main thing is to drive a wedge deeper.
      In the East, in the face they beat for frantic dumping in the market. It is not surprising that the Chinese were "offended".
      Nothing, the Chinese will be able to pour a glass of kerosene onto the "greens". But later. wassat

    The United States probably has few problems that they have created in recent years. Now they have systematically taken up China. Either harsh statements or ships off the disputed islands. An interesting situation, given the fact that China always reacts sharply and sometimes without diplomatic troubles.

    One would think that the States had not armed Taiwan before that, and that he himself reached his current level of army and navy. Nothing new has happened, everything is as usual: China is trying to strengthen its position in the region, and the States, Japan and Korea really do not want this. Hence the armament of Taiwan as a possible adversary of China and a potential bridgehead for containment troops.

    Who would doubt it. The basic doctrine of the United States divide and conquer, push your foreheads and rise. And this policy has been unchanged for 50-60 years, if not more. On the other hand, it’s in our hands. The more states tug on a Chinese tiger with a mustache, the more they displease it. It must be remembered that the yuan is already listed among the IMF's reserve currency, and the dollar is worth a lot across the throat.

    Each person or country doesn’t like it when an independent object or subject is nearby. This is already an area of ​​psychology. Taiwan certainly will not harm China in any way, but it will be very difficult to force it into an alliance. It is better to do this exclusively diplomatically. And you can incite hatred in five minutes but then the road to reconciliation may take centuries.

    The main thing here is to understand where the cause is and where the effect is. The leaders of Taiwan and China met, there was a warming, and immediately the United States threw a source of irritation in the form of arms supplies to Taiwan. The result is a breakdown of the intended warming.
    Very similar to Ukraine and Syria. Only Yanukovych agreed to remain with Russia-immediately Maidan. The EU’s support on the part of the EU in Syria was only outlined - immediately a Turkish provocation. Coincidence? I don’t think so ...

    Politically eternally hungry AM-AMs really want to maintain tension between China and Taiwan, but this is unpromising in the long run. China, a country with thousand-year-old traditions and principles, will not advertise its main goal. Sooner or later, but Taiwan will enter China on its own initiative and this will not be coercion - national, economic and military-political gravity is inevitable.

      What does "China will not advertise its goal" mean? China quite openly speaks of a desire to annex Taiwan. Well, to the heap of becoming one of the world poles.
