China says it is canceling or suspending dialogue with the US on issues from climate change to military relations and anti-drug efforts.
Dialogue between area commanders and defense department heads is also canceled, along with talks on military maritime safety.
Cooperation on returning illegal immigrants, criminal investigations, transnational crime, illegal drugs and climate change are also suspended.
The measures announced Friday are the latest in a promised series of steps intended to punish Washington for allowing the visit by Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, to the island it claims as its own territory to be annexed by force if necessary.
China is holding threatening military exercises in seven zones off Taiwan’s coasts.
