Taiwan: Major U.S. Arms Sales Since 1990
This report discusses U.S. security assistance to Taiwan, or Republic of China (ROC), including policy issues for Congress and legislation. Congress has oversight of the Taiwan Relations Act, P.L. 96-8, which has governed arms sales to Taiwan since 1979, when the United States recognized the People¿s Republic of China (PRC) instead of the ROC. Two other relevant parts of the ¿one China¿ policy are the August 17, 1982, U.S.-PRC Joint Communiqué and the ¿Six Assurances¿ to Taiwan. U.S. arms sales to Taiwan have been significant. The United States also has expanded military ties with Taiwan after the PRC¿s missile firings in 1995-1996. However, there is no defense treaty with Taiwan. Charts and tables.
