"China on Thursday denounced a decision by the United States to upgrade Taiwan's F-16 fighter jets, summoning the U.S. ambassador and warning that military ties and overall relations will suffer. Despite the heated rhetoric, the impact on overall ties was expected to be slight, partly because Washington deferred a decision on whether to sell Taiwan a more advanced version of the plane that would have stirred far greater anger from Beijing."
