(Bloomberg, By Staff Writer) The U.S. Congress was formally notified of the proposed $8 billion fighter jet sale to Taiwan this week, to which China threatened to sanction American firms participating in the arms deal. China threatened similar action in response to last month's arms sale between the U.S. and Taiwan; however, no sanctions were implemented. A Taiwanese government spokesperson stressed the importance of the deal for cross-strait stability. <Accessed 2019-08-21>
