В защиту Тайваня

Госдепартамент США одобрил проект оборонного контракта в защиту Тайваня: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-taiwan/u-s-state-department-approves-possible-2-2-billion-arms-sale-to-taiwan-idUSKCN1U32HT

На $2,2 миллиарда.
в том числе на 250 "стрингеров", 108 "абрамсов" и 1500 противотанковых ракет.

Символично, перед турне Цай Ин-вэнь в США, которое на этот раз будет с некоторыми сюрпризами.

"This proposed sale serves US national, economic and security interests by supporting the recipient's continuing efforts to modernize its armed forces and to maintain a credible defensive.
The proposed sale will help improve the securuty of the recipient and assist in maintaining political stability, military balance and economic progress in the region
" - US Defense Department's Defense Security Cooperation Agency.

"Pleased that the US government has approved another arms sale package, boosting Taiwan's self-defense capabilities.
We'll continue to speed up investment in national defense and partner with like-minded countries to defend democracy while promoting regional peace and stability"
- Taiwan's president Tsai Ing-wen.

"These tanks and missiles will provide the Taiwan army with a modern capability to deter and complicate the operational planning of the PLA forces that coerce and threaten Taiwan" - US-Taiwan Business Council.

Отмечу, на данный момент только решение Госдепартамента.
Для окончательного утверждения необходимо одобрение обеих палат Конгресса.
