China not too keen on nuclear missile fuses being shipped "mistakenly" to Taiwan

BEIJING - China on Wednesday strongly protested the U.S. military's mistaken delivery to Taiwan of intercontinental ballistic missile electrical fuses, demanding an investigation and steps to "eliminate the negative effects and disastrous consequences."

In a statement posted on the ministry's Web site, Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said China issued a protest to Washington and expressed "strong displeasure" over the error.

The U.S. Defense Department said Tuesday the Air Force mistakenly shipped to Taiwan four electrical fuses designed for use on intercontinental ballistic missiles. The fuses have since been recovered and an investigation launched.
