China Upset Over 'Negative' Taiwan Content In US Defence Bill

  • President Tsai Ing-wen

China reportedly complained Monday about "negative content" in an annual defense bill passed by the House, which included a provision to expand its communication with Taiwan.

The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), passed by the House on Friday, also proposes expanding training and exercises with Taiwan.

"China has already lodged stern representations with the United States about this", Lu said during a daily news briefing, the news wire reported.

Beijing has long objected to any U.S. military assistance to the self-governing island.

"China firmly opposes any forms of official exchange and military contact between the United States and Taiwan", foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang told reporters at a regular press briefing, adding that Beijing had made "stern representations" to Washington over the bill.

"We urge the United States to fully recognise the serious harmfulness of the relevant clauses in the act, and should not allow then into law, and not turn back the wheel of history to avoid damaging the broad picture of Sino-US cooperation".

The bill now moves to the U.S. Senate.

China considers democratic Taiwan to be a wayward province and has never renounced the use of force to bring the island under its control.

Tsai, however, has said she wants peaceful relations with China.

The United States angered China last month over its approval of $1.3 billion worth of arms sales to Taiwan, with Beijing calling on Washington to immediately revoke its "wrong decision" to strike the deal.

Under the three joint communiques, the United States is obliged to abide by the one-China policy, recognizing that Taiwan is part of China and the Government of the People's Republic of China is the sole legal government of China.

US President Donald Trump has often questioned America's commitment to the "One China" policy in the China-Taiwan row.
