BEIJING -- The United States should end all its military links with Taiwan and scrap a recent arms sale deal with the island, Chinese state media on Monday quoted the defense minister as telling a visiting U.S. senator.
China claims Taiwan, ruled separately since 1949, as a part of its sovereign territory and says the self-ruled, democratic island must accept eventual reunification, by force if necessary.
Beijing has already denounced the $6.5 billion Taiwan package, which includes 30 Apache attack helicopters and 330 Patriot missiles.
