Biden approves $345 million weapons package to Taiwan to support the island against Chinese invasion
08/08/2023 // Laura Harris // Views

The administration of President Joe Biden announced on July 29 its decision to send $345 million in weapons to Taiwan after Congress approved up to $1 billion in Presidential Drawdown Authority to fast-track the provision of support to the island nation against the possible invasion of China.

In response to the news, the Taiwanese Ministry of National Defense expressed its gratitude for the unwavering security commitment of the United States. Taiwan's representative office in the U.S. noted that the administration's decision to pull arms and other materiel from its own stockpiles provided "an important tool to support Taiwan's self-defense."

Chen Binhua, a spokesperson for Beijing's Taiwan Affairs Office, claimed that no matter how much money the "Taiwanese separatist forces spend" and no matter how many American weapons are sent to the island, "it will not take our resolve to solve the Taiwan problem or shake our firm will to realize the reunification of our motherland."

Communist China noted that it sees the military aid package as a direct challenge to its claims over Taiwan and vowed not to back down on its stance that Taiwan is its rightful territory.

"Their actions are turning Taiwan into a powder keg and ammunition depot, aggravating the threat of war in the Taiwan Strait," said Chen.

However, some fear that the security assistance of the U.S. to Taiwan may lead to a proxy war similar to the situation in Ukraine with Russia. The U.S. has been conducting war games in preparation for a potential conflict with China to defend Taiwan.


Lt. Gen. Jonathan P. Braga, the commanding general of the U.S. Army Special Command, stated before the exercises took place, "[China], in accordance with our national defense strategy, is our true pacing challenge out there. Ultimately, what we are trying to do is prevent World War III. That's our job."

Lawmakers pressuring Pentagon, White House to speed up delivery of weapons to Taiwan

The latest defense package for Taiwan comes as U.S. lawmakers continue to put pressure on both the Pentagon and the White House to speed up the delivery of weapons to Taiwan, with the goal of providing the democratically governed island nation enough strength to counter China and to deter the communists from considering an invasion. With enough weaponry given to Taipei, it could make the price of an invasion far too costly.

The upcoming military aid package will reportedly include at least four unarmed MQ-9A reconnaissance drones.

Su Tzu-yun, a research fellow at the Taipei-based think tank the Institute for National Defense and Security Research, believes that the Biden administration is likely prioritizing the delivery of precision-guided munitions in the recent defense package, such as FIM-92 Stinger surface-to-air missiles.

This package is in addition to the nearly $19 billion in military sales the U.S. has approved for Taiwan, including its recent $216.7 million order for four MQ-9B "Sky Guardian" combat drones, which are expected to arrive in Taiwan by 2025. Taiwan has also been purchasing other major weapons systems from the U.S., such as F-16 fighter jets.
