The State Department has approved a $1.1B arms sale to Taiwan.

On Friday, the Pentagon announced the package would include 60 anti-ship missiles, 100 air-to-air missiles and surveillance radar equipment.

The announcement comes as China has increasingly launched military exercises close to Taiwan’s coast and violated the Country’s air-defense space. The Communist Country is not happy with the US’s latest package to Taiwan.

This aggression has only increased since Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) visited Taiwan last month. Beijing viewed her visit to the Island as “meddling.”
