(Associated Press, By Staff Writer) China announced Friday that it would implement sanctions on US companies involved in the $2.2 billion arms sale between the United States and Taiwan. Both Taiwanese government agencies and President Tsai Ing-wen have defended the arms sale decision by the United States, stating that the deal will help ensure national security amid growing threats from China. China has also protested Tsai's trip to the Caribbean that includes stops in the United States. <Accessed 2019-07-14>
