Obama administration sets $1.83 billion arms sale to Taiwan
The authorization, which Reuters on Monday reported was imminent, came a year after Congress passed legislation approving the sale. It is the first such major arms sale to Taiwan in more than four years.
David McKeeby, a spokesman for the U.S. State Department, said there is no change in the longstanding U.S. “one China” policy. Past U.S. weapons sales to Taiwan have attracted strong condemnation in China, which considers Taiwan a renegade province. –Reuters
