US to sell weapons, services worth $1.1 billion to Taiwan says Pentagon

WASHINGTON, September 3. The US administration announced on Friday three contracts for the sale of arms and technical services to Taiwan worth a total of $1.1 billion, the US State Department and the Pentagon said.

The first contract, worth $665.4 million, will provide Taiwan with equipment and logistical support for its radar stations. The second one envisages the delivery of 60 AGM-84L Harpoon Block II anti-ship missiles and four ATM-84L-1 Harpoon Block II missiles worth $355 million. Under the third contract, worth $85.6 million, Taiwan is to acquire 100 AIM-9X Block II Sidewinder tactical air-to-air missiles.

The US State Department has authorized the implementation of these treaties in accordance with national legislation.

The administration has already notified Congress of the move. The Legislature now has 30 days to scrutinize the deals and possibly block them.
