The United States is getting ready to authorize an arms sale package for Taiwan. That’s according to a report by CNN Thursday.
According to the report, the US government is getting ready to sell seven major weapons systems to Taiwan. The package is said to include the MQ-9 Reaper drone, which has an estimated value of US$600 million.
