This is the most ridiculous claim that I have heard of. China's military doesn't have any business deals with the US. US imposing sanctions on General Li is just useless and for nothing.

Beside, there are a ton of Chinese politicians got sanctioned by the US. None of them got striped of their title. Whatever happened, it has to do with internal corruption or espionage. In addition, General Li got the promoted when he already got sanctioned by the US. Nobody important gives a damn about the US sanctions anymore.

Well if we ever get such information it's just guess work for now.

Maybe so, but it doesn't mean we should accept and ponder every outrageous claim. Just remember, China isn't a vassal of the US. China only paid lip service the US when matters are domestic and national interests. More important, China isn't Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, UK or Australia. China is the world second most powerful country.

Doesn't make your guess any less absurd. Why would China break it's long established pattern of only recognising UN sanctions just for 1 person?

Li was kicked for the same reason Pompeo was kicked, not because they were sanctioned, but because they didn't perform on the job.

Possibly has something to do with the United States imposing sanctions on him and the Equipment Development Department for purchasing Russian fighter jets and surface-to-air missile systems. These sanctions were a result of the Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA), which aims to deter countries from engaging in significant transactions with Russia's defense and intelligence sectors.

Due to these sanctions, General Li and the Equipment Development Department faced restrictions on doing business with the U.S. financial system, and any assets they may have had in the U.S. were frozen.
You sound like a spokesperson for the US State Department.

Ignore listed for both stupidity and obvious lack of objectivity.
