China said on Monday it had lodged a stern complaint with the United States after the U.S. House of Representatives passed its version of a big annual defense bill that would expand exchanges with self-ruled Taiwan.
China considers democratic Taiwan to be a wayward province and has never renounced the use of force to bring the island under its control.
The United States has no formal ties with Taiwan but is bound by law to help it defend itself and is the island's main source of arms.
The National Defense Authorization Act, passed by the House on Friday, also proposes expanding training and exercises with Taiwan.
