In yet another move to further escalate tensions with Beijing, Pres Trump approved an $8b sale of F-16s to Taipei on Friday. In a quick response, Chinese Foreign Ministry spox Hua Chunying said:

Such moves severely violate the one-China policy. China firmly opposes this and has lodged stern representations with Pindostan. Faschingstein should fully recognize the highly sensitive and harmful nature of the relevant issue. Otherwise, the Chinese side will surely make strong reactions, and Pindostan will have to bear all the consequences. It must be stressed that the Taiwan issue concerns China’s sovereignty, territorial integrity and security interests.

China has sovereignty over the island and almost all world countries recognize that sovereignty under the policy known as One China.
