BUDAPEST (July 12): 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 to Taiwan.

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.

"We urge the US to fully recognise the gravity of the Taiwan question ... (and) not to play with fire on the question of Taiwan," he told a news conference via an interpreter.
