International News: United States approves new $500 million arms sale to Taiwan

Posted: Wednesday, August 23, 2023. 3:12 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: The United States has approved a new $500 million arms sale to Taiwan as the island faces increased military presence around it from China.

According to the Associated Press, the U.S. signed off on the sale of infrared search tracking systems along with related equipment for advanced F-16 fighter jets.

“This proposed sale serves U.S. national, economic, and security interests by supporting the recipient’s continuing efforts to modernize its armed forces and to maintain a credible defensive capability,” the State Department said in a statement.

China views Taiwan as its territory and has long vowed to “reunify” the self-governing democratic island.

The U.S. State Department announcement came hours after Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen renewed a pledge to strengthen Taiwan’s self-defense.
