United State Finalise Sale Of 66 Fighter Jets To Taiwan

The United State has finalised a sale of 66 new American-made F-16 fighter jets to Taiwan, marking the largest arms sale to the self-governing island in years.

China is allegedly not happy about this development.

The Chinese state-run media published a critique of the deal and implied the US was aiding Taiwan in trying to become more independent from Beijing.

The US however, says the deal will help Taiwan keep pace with Beijing’s military might.

Tensions over the island have been building for a while. When US Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar visited Taiwan last week, China condemned the visit and launched military demonstrations in response.
