China Blasts US Military Bill          08/14 06:15

   BEIJING (AP) -- China has criticized a U.S. military spending bill that 
calls for helping self-ruled Taiwan improve its defense as interference in the 
country's affairs.

   The communist Beijing government, which claims Taiwan as its own territory 
and has threatened to invade, said Tuesday that the legislation "damages mutual 
trust" and "ruins the atmosphere" for military cooperation.

   The legislation signed Monday by President Donald Trump calls for 
development of plans to help Taiwan improve its defenses.

   It comes amid mounting concern in Washington over Beijing's moves to enforce 
its claims to the South China Sea and to isolate Taiwan diplomatically.
