United States, “Defense News” recently broke insider news that the U.S. State Department decision to shelve the 2010 arms sales to Taiwan, from the “Beijing’s threat” is likely to stifle Taiwan’s purchase of F -16 plans. At the same time, U.S. President Barack Obama once again expressed the hope that China invited Gates to visit China, the United States heavyweight members have claimed that between China and the U.S. arms sales to Taiwan is becoming a “major worry.” But there is another voice in the United States issued, said stop arms sales, it means giving up Taiwan. In arms sales to Taiwan, the United States is released from the complex signal. Beijing Foreign Affairs College Fan Wang experts believe the United States, even if the U.S. arms sales to shelve the problem is not a fundamental solution. He believes that, although the long term, the pressure would make America more and more Chinese can not be ignored, but the U.S. probably will not give up arms sales to Taiwan, the Taiwan issue to resolve is the United States give up the key.
United States, “Defense News” 28 reported that Taipei and Washington, the authority of the sources, the “Beijing’s powerful lobbies”, the U.S. State Department decided to “hold” to submit to Congress on the 2010 new arms sales to Taiwan of all notifications. The report quoted a defense analyst in Washington, complained: “China has increased the pressure, interference with the false intelligence of our review, in particular, is currently in the process of arms sales to Taiwan vulnerable period.”
The report also said the US-Taiwan Business Association, Korean Confucianism, Peter said last week in a visit to Taiwan at least three on arms sales to Taiwan will be notified at least be “set aside” the spring of 2011, with the end of 2010 arrival, expected to be more informed, “are piled up”. Korean Confucianism Bo said, Taiwan is strongly demanded the U.S. to deliver F-16A/B fighter aircraft upgrade program, but it has not yet reached the stage of congressional notice, the real concern is that Taiwan asked the U.S. to sell 66 F-16C/D fighter aircraft, Since 2006, the arms sales has been “shelved” in the State Department.
Although the two countries to solve the problem of U.S. arms sales to Taiwan published “August 17″ Communique, the United States will gradually reduce the emphasis on arms sales to Taiwan, but in recent years, arms sales to Taiwan problems are time and again set off storms in the China-US, most Chinese people do not expect the U.S. to stop arms sales to Taiwan immediately.
Fan Wang believes that if the U.S. does hold arms sales to Taiwan, can be seen as the core of China has long defended the interests of a stage victory, is a good sign. He said the arms sales to Taiwan for the United States is a very complex issue, but China-US relations have changed a lot, a lot of international strategic issues in China has played an active coordinating role, should the United States into thinking in issues concerning China’s core interests is more flexible and respects China’s interests.
This message has not been evidence of other news sources, U.S. officials have not given in public. However, “Defense News” is the Pentagon’s media background, it is often the disclosure of some of the inside information on arms sales to Taiwan, many of which later proved to be the message relevant aspects of the facts or deliberately leaked and test. Early January, the U.S. State Department announced arms sales to Taiwan before, “Defense News” published an article on the exact tone to it that the U.S. will soon start selling arms to Taiwan, and very specifically, arms sales to Taiwan, including UH-60M Black Hawk helicopters, “Patriot” missile defense system.
in “Defense News” reports in 28 U.S. attitude change is because “Beijing’s threat” should not be overlooked. Reported that the Chinese side the United States to sell Taiwan F-16 fighters as a “red line”, it is unclear if the U.S. really do so, China will take measures, Bo Han Confucianism that, despite the risk of unknown , but “Washington attaches great importance to Beijing’s threats” and this “freeze” this year’s arms sales to Taiwan. He said China believes that it’s “red line” argument killed the F-16 fighter deal, Obama also believes that to sell the F-16 is an over-act, it is different from selling other weapons. Korean Confucianism Peter said, in view ? Lockheed Martin F-16 fighter is about to shut down the production line, the Chinese government is adopting a policy of procrastination in order to force Taiwan to miss the deadline.
Tsinghua University Professor Sun Zhe just been to Taiwan, he was “Global Times” reporter, said from his understanding of the situation, the United States and Taiwan do not mean to give up arms sales. US-Taiwan Business Association, representatives of Korean Confucianism, Peter the interests of U.S. arms dealers, in fact, many sales items are handled by him, so he let such words, it may just be the release of smoke bombs, disguised as arms sales to Taiwan pressure.
Taiwan’s “Liberty Times,” the article also said: “The United States Congress Members to support the majority of arms sales to Taiwan for F-16C/D fighters in the accumulation of energy continues. And U.S. economic conditions are poor, many face the pressure of members of Congress mid-term elections are anti-China sentiment. “
