China to Impose Sanctions on Multiple US Suppliers as Trade Feud Intensifies

China to Impose Sanctions on Multiple US Suppliers as Trade Feud Intensifies

(AmericanProsperity.com) – Tension between the United States and China rose rapidly this year after COVID-19 emerged from the east Asian country. The week of October 26, the situation heated up further after Beijing declared that it’ll bring new sanctions against America due to our support of Taiwan.

Last week, Beijing asked the US State Department to cancel a $1.8-billion weapons deal with Taiwan. The US continued forward with the deal, which included:

  • 135 precision land-attack missiles from Boeing
  • Himars mobile rocket systems from Lockheed Martin
  • Surveillance and reconnaissance equipment from Raytheon

Beijing spokesman Zhao Lijian shared the decision to sanction the US defense contractors involved in the deal here:

While China believes the sale “seriously undermined China’s sovereignty and security interests,” Taiwan will be able to safeguard itself against any future attacks through this acquisition. Helping democracies defend themselves has been a key aspect of American foreign affairs, and a few sanctions from China won’t stop that.
