the Pentagon on military exchanges with the Chinese military is particularly valued, because it is their close contact with one of the few opportunities for the Chinese army. United States has been extremely mysterious that the Chinese army, the Chinese military’s mission and budget issues many attacks.
But these officials also said that at present it seems Beijing’s arms sales to Taiwan in the United States to respond to the performance was quite restrained. China has not announced the official cancellation of a given visit, there is no threat as before, as the U.S. companies involved in arms sales sanctions.
In addition, these officials noted that even in China this month to allow the U.S. aircraft carrier Nimitz docked in Hong Kong for supplies, which in the past tense period of Sino-US relations is unthinkable.

China’s goal is to make the U.S. a warning.”
earlier this month Obama throws despite strong opposition from China arms sales to Taiwan, China has taken on this issue for decades the most hard-line approach, announced that it would take retaliatory measures to reduce the size of the Sino-US military exchanges, the United States to participate in sanctions Taiwan arms sales of the company and warned of bilateral relations and cooperation on international issues are will be seriously affected.
