MND denies United States may sell Tomahawks

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- The defense minister yesterday denied a report that the United States may sell Tomahawk cruise missiles to Taiwan in a bid to control arms development in the island. Defense Minister Lee Tien-yu said he "has not heard of such a possible arms sale as reported," while replying to a query raised by an opposition lawmaker.
A military source told the Taipei-based China Times that "Washington is very likely to sell Taiwan Tomahawk cruise missiles if Taiwan is capable of mass producing its own Hsiungfeng 2E cruise missiles."

Topic: Not much


Not much really maybe some added Tomahawks sales. I was just voicing my opinion following the past poster if China going to sell Iran fighter lets sell more to Taiwan. The quote you quoted me on is a from a news article that I found, not one I wrote. Your question confuses me a little on how its phrased I'm not sure I should answer.
