Worth $1.1 billion

According to the report, the US wants to supply Taiwan with weapons

Tensions between Washington and Beijing are likely to grow with this news: according to a report, the US government plans to support Taiwan with 60 anti-ship missiles and 100 air-to-air missiles.

US President Joe Biden reportedly wants to supply arms to Taiwan.

According to a report, the US government apparently plans to supply Taiwan with weapons worth around 1.1 billion dollars. The magazine “Politico” reported on Monday (local time), citing three different sources involved in the matter. The government wants to ask Congress to approve the deal. The package includes 60 anti-ship missiles and 100 air-to-air missiles. A spokeswoman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs declined to comment on the report.

Such a deal is likely to strengthen already strained relations between the US and China. China sees the democratically governed island as part of the People’s Republic. Taiwan, on the other hand, sees itself as independent.
