The US announced plans for sales of $2.2 billion in tanks, missiles and related military hardware to Taiwan in June, drawing the ire of Beijing, which sees such sales as interference in its sovereignty claims over the self-ruled island.

Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Geng Shuang revealed this during a daily news briefing on Monday, adding that the arms sales were a violation of worldwide law and harmed China's sovereignty and national security.
