Taiwan on Wednesday called on China to renounce the use of force against the self-ruled island, hours after Beijing warned that it was ready for war if there was a move toward Taiwan's independence.

Earlier on Wednesday, China's defense ministry accused the United States of undermining global stability and denouncing its arms sales to Taiwan.
