US Plans to Sell Taiwan $1.42 Billion in Arms

AF.mil

The United States plans to sell Taiwan $1.42 billion in arms, the first such sale under the administration of Donald Trump, Reuters reports.

According to the US State Department, the package included technical support for early warning radar, high speed anti-radiation missiles, torpedoes and missile components.

 

On the occasion the US State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert noted:

"The sales showed US support for Taiwan's ability to maintain a sufficient self-defense capability, but there was no change to the United States' long-standing "one China" policy, which recognizes Beijing and not Taipei."

 

To note the United States is the sole arms supplier to Taiwan.
