Taiwan's plan to buy F-35 fighter jets riles China

Taiwan's decision to pursue its first arms deal with the United States since President Donald Trump assumed office has generated a stern warning from Beijing.

Chinese defense ministry spokesman Yang Yujun said Thursday at a press briefing, "China is adamantly opposed to selling weapons to Taiwan and there is no space for progress if unification by force is rejected," South Korea news service News 1 reported.

Taiwan had earlier signaled an interest in purchasing Lockheed Martin F-35 fighter jets, Bloomberg reported.
