The United States’ arms sales to Taiwan are pushing people on the island toward catastrophe, a Chinese defense spokesperson said on Wednesday.

Tan Kefei, spokesperson for the Ministry of National Defense, made the remarks in response to an arms deal approved by the U.S. State Department, which consists of selling Taiwan ammunition and logistics supply support.

China firmly opposes the U.S. side’s arms sales to China’s Taiwan region, and have lodged solemn representations over the matter, said Tan.
