China urged the United States on Tuesday to immediately revoke its planned military sale to Taiwan at an estimated cost of $2.2 billion, and end its weapons sales and military ties with Taiwan.

China is strongly dissatisfied with and firmly opposed to the proposed sale, and has lodged solemn representations to the US, said Yang Jiechi, a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and director of the Office of the Foreign Affairs Commission of the CPC Central Committee.

Taiwan is an inseparable part of China's territory, Yang said during a meeting in Beijing on Tuesday with Igor Ivanov, president of the Russian International Affairs Council and a former Russian foreign minister.
