Xinhua quoted the National Association for China’s Peaceful Unification (NACPU), which is based in Washington DC as strongly condemning the U.S. arms sale to Taiwan. NACPU claims that the oversea’s Chinese population in the Washington DC region strongly oppose the U.S. arms sale to Taiwan. Wu Huiqiu, president of the NACPU called it an “unwise decision” which “casts a shadow over the US-Sino relationship” and will “hinder the development of cross strait relations.”
On September 21, 2011, the U.S. announced the decision to sell arms to Taiwan. A number of times, China has strongly criticized and objected to the decision.
