The Chinese government today threatened the US with “retaliation” if it goes ahead with a new arms sale to Taiwan, which the State Department approved on Friday.

“China will resolutely take legal and necessary countermeasures,” warned the representative of the Chinese embassy in Washington Liu Pengyu.

The US State Department gave the green light to the potential sale of $1.1 billion worth of arms to Taiwan, including 100 Sidewinder missiles to intercept enemy missiles and drones ($85.6 million), 60 Harpoon anti-ship missiles (worth $355 million) and support for Taiwan’s radar system ($665 million).

Upon approval by State Departmentthe arms sale must receive the approval of the US Congress, which is considered almost certain.
