China's defense ministry said on Tuesday it has lodged solemn representations with the United States over its weapons aid package to Taiwan.

China urges the US to stop all forms of "military collusion" with Taiwan, Tan Kefei, a spokesperson for the ministry said in a statement.

"The People's Liberation Army pays close attention to the situation in the Taiwan Strait, and always stays on high alert," Tan said.
