BEIJING, Oct 17 (Reuters) - China's military on Sunday condemned the United States and Canada for sending warships through the Taiwan Strait last week, saying their actions seriously jeopardised peace and stability.

Chinese forces monitored the ships and "stood guard" throughout their sailing, the People's Liberation Army's Eastern Theatre Command said in a statement. (Reporting by Ryan Woo; Writing by Ben Blanchard)
