Price said on Twitter on May 21 that China "continues to publicly misrepresent US policy.

Update: China says US shipped $70 bln worth of weapons to Taiwan (TASS)  

WNU Editor: The key paragraph from the above Global Times article is the following .... .... What's more, the military ties between the two sides are becoming more frequent and open, and the scale of US arms sales to Taiwan is increasing, totaling more than $70 billion, which is in violation of the US commitment to gradually reduce arms sales to the island. The US side has also hyped the expansion of Taiwan's so-called "international space," trampling on its promises that the US has no intention of implementing "two Chinas" or a "one China, one Taiwan" policy. 

Here is the list of US Arms sales to Taiwan .... List of US arms sales to Taiwan (Wikipedia).
