China demands US cancel proposed $2.2bn arms sale to Taiwan

China has demanded that the United States "immediately cancel" a potential $2.2bn arms sale to Taiwan, including battle tanks and anti-aircraft missiles.
The move would be Washington's first big-ticket
military sale to the democratically-governed island in decades, and
comes amid deteriorating ties between the US and China, the world's two
largest economies that have been locked in an acrimonious trade war.
