The US approved the sale of arms to Taiwan, ignoring China’s objections. Under the recent agreement, the US has approved the sale of armed drones to Taiwan for $ 600 million (about Rs 44 billion 85 crore). The US decision is seen as a major setback for China, as it was consistently opposed to selling arms to Taiwan.
The US State Department confirmed this, saying that the process of delivering remote operated armed drones and other equipment to Taiwan has been approved. The ministry said that once the drone was found, Taiwan would be helped in its security, military balance and political stability. Last week, the US agreed to sell $ 237 million Harpoon missile to Taiwan.
China protested, threatening to ban US companies supplying arms. Tensions between China and the United States have been rising due to arms being given to Taiwan, among other issues. Tell that China empowers Taiwan by declaring it as a separate province. While Taiwan says it is a sovereign country.
