Washington is strengthening ties with China with additional arms shipments to Taiwan

According to a statement from the Taiwanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, this is the ninth time that US President Joe Biden’s administration has sold military equipment, technical and logistical services to Taiwan. Washington is legally obligated under the 1979 law to support the development of the island’s defense capabilities.

The Pentagon’s Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) has announced that the military equipment includes hundreds of missiles and other equipment that could be used for F-16 fighter jets.

The military equipment for sale will enhance the defense of Taiwan’s airspace, the security of the region, and assist in mutual cooperation with the United States.

DSCA said. The agency said the deal would help improve Taipei’s security and maintain political stability and military balance in the region.

However, according to experts, US support will only increase tensions between Beijing and Taipei, and between China and the United States.

Last summer, Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic Speaker of the House at the time, visited Taiwan, which caused great discontent in Beijing. At the time, experts believed that “the Chinese can put up with many things, but they certainly don’t lose face to the Americans.”
