The US should stop selling weapons to Taiwan as it violates the One China principle, Liu Pengyu, spokesman for the Chinese Embassy in Washington, said.

As transmits TASSThus, the diplomat commented on the Politico article, which, citing three sources, said that the administration of US President Joe Biden intends to ask Congress to approve the sale of weapons worth $ 1 billion to Taiwan. According to sources, 60 AGM-84L Harpoon Block anti-ship missiles may be included in the package II for $355 million and 100 AIM-9X Block II Sidewinder tactical air-to-air missiles for $85.6 million.
