The United States approves a $120 million sale for the maintenance of Taiwanese Warships

Taiwan's defense ministry has confirmed a possible $120 million sale of parts to the United States for the maintenance of its warships, which it said would ensure combat readiness as a result of the Chinese regime's frequent "activities" near the island.

Taiwan's de facto embassy in Washington requested that the State Department approve the sale, and the Defense Security Cooperation Agency delivered the notification to Congress.

As part of the sale, the U.S. government, contractor representatives, and technical specialists covered unclassified spare and repair parts for ships and ship systems, along with logistical technical assistance.

Taiwan’s defense ministry said the deal was expected to come into effect within one month, and expressed its thanks to the United States for its support in helping Taiwan be able to protect itself.
