US official decision to sell new F16 fighter to Taiwan China strongly repelled August 21 9:17
The American Trump administration has officially decided to sell 66 new F16 fighters to Taiwan and notified Parliament. A strong backlash from China is expected.
The Trump administration has officially decided to sell 66 new F16 fighters and related equipment to Taiwan and has announced that it has notified Parliament on the 20th.
The sale amount is 8 billion dollars, and the Japanese yen is about 850 billion yen.
State Secretary Pompeio said, “This sale decision is in line with the historical relationship between the US and China, and the US policy so far,” he stressed.
China, on the other hand, requested the US to withdraw as the sale was an internal interference because it reported in advance that the American media was proceeding with the sale.
US State Department officials explained that “it will help Taiwan maintain its full capacity for self-defense and will not change America's“ one China ”policy,” says the Trump administration. China's strong rebound is expected against the official decision to sell.
