The Obama Administration has announced a 1.83 billion dollars arms sale to Taiwan in a deal that has antagonized China.

The US said the deal was consistent with its "long-standing policy on arms sales to Taiwan".

But China has said it is strongly opposed to the sale, and has pledged to sanction the US firms involved in it.

The deal, the first in four years, comes as US-China relations fray over China's construction of artificial islands in the South China Sea.
