BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s Foreign Ministry said on Thursday the government and Chinese companies would not cooperate with U.S. companies involved in selling Taiwan arms.

The Obama administration formally notified Congress on Wednesday of a $1.83 billion arms sale package for self-ruled Taiwan, including two frigates, anti-tank missiles, amphibious assault vehicles and other equipment.
