beijing - The Chinese government called on the American ambassador in Beijing and is planning military talks with the US. With these measures, the country responds to the sanctions that Washington imposed on a Chinese military agency last week.

The postponed consultation should have taken place next week. The Chinese Ministry of Defense said in a statement that a visit by naval chief Shen Jinlong to the US will be terminated prematurely. The department states that the army reserves the right to take more measures without going into details.

The US punitive measures are directed against the Chinese agency that deals with arms procurement. The sanctions are related to the purchase of Russian military equipment, including fighter aircraft of the type SU-35, at arms exporter Rosoboronexport.
