The regional situation is getting more and more aggravated since Pelosi, the U.S. House Speaker and other high-ranking figures of the U.S. visited Taiwan one after another in August and the U.S. warships passed through the Taiwan Strait. Against this backdrop, the U.S. government recently approved again the US$1.1billion worth arms sale to Taiwan.

This is the 6 th arms sale approved by the Biden administration and the largest one as well.

Some time ago, the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee passed the “Taiwan Policy Act of 2022” on increasing on a large scale the assistance to Taiwan, including the billions of U.S. dollar worth security assistance.

The keynote of this act is to expand the military assistance to Taiwan and upgrade the relations with Taiwan. It includes that the U.S. provides US$4.5 billion worth security assistance to Taiwan for the next 4 years and if necessary, imposes sanctions to China and grants Taiwan with the position of “non-NATO ally” and gives it the same diplomatic treatment as other countries.

In this connection, some while ago, the spokesperson for Chinese foreign ministry strongly condemned that the U.S. arms sale to Taiwan seriously violates the principle of "One China" and the rules of 3 Joint Communiques between China and the U.S., especially the "August 17 Joint Communique" and infringes upon the sovereignty and security interests of China, the China-U.S. relations and the peace and stability of the Taiwan Strait. She also mentioned that the Chinese government, in order to safeguard sovereignty and security interests, decided to impose sanctions on the U.S. entrepreneurs who participated in the recent arms sale.

“China Daily” expressed serious concern as follows:

That the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee passed the “Taiwan Policy Act of 2022” is a dangerous move which can make the U.S. provide direct military assistance to Taiwan. If this act is passed in practice, the Taiwan island will become another agent of war waged by the U.S.

The Chinese media and experts warn that if the U.S. recklessly provokes China, it will further tarnish the image of the U.S. For the U.S., military confrontation with China will not be a matter of any hasty decision.
