During a visit to Hungary, Wang said that no foreign force could stop the reunification of China and no foreign force should try to intervene

China's top diplomat Wang Yi warned the United States on Friday that it should "not play with fire" on the question of Taiwan, expressing anger about a planned US arms sale.

During a visit to Hungary, Wang said that no foreign force could stop the reunification of China and no foreign force should try to intervene.

The US State Department has approved the possible sale to Taiwan of M1A2T Abrams tanks, Stinger missiles and related equipment at an estimated value of $2.2 billion, the Pentagon said on Monday, despite Chinese criticism of the deal.

China claims self-ruled and democratic Taiwan as its own and views it as a wayward province.

"We urge the US to fully recognize the gravity of the Taiwan question ... [and] not to play with fire on the question of Taiwan," Wang told a news conference via an interpreter.
