On Dec 6th, the foreign media reported that the Biden administration on the same day signed off on two new significant arms sales worth $425 Million to Taiwan.
The State Department said it had approved sales worth more than $425 million of spare aircraft parts to support Taiwan‘s fleet of F-16 fighters, C-130 transport planes and other U.S.-supplied weapons systems. The package includes $330 million in standard replacement parts and $98 million in non-standard equipment along with related accessories and logistics.
The State Department emphasized that the arms sales are in the national, economic and security interests of the United States, helping to keep Taiwan’s aerial fleet and enhance its ability to respond to current and future threats, while providing critical defense and transportation capabilities to regional security. So far, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Chinese regime has yet to comment on the U.S. arms sales to Taiwan.
