The US government is concerned that it won’t be able to supply enough weapons to Taiwan because most of its military support has been redirected to Ukraine, The Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday.
According to the newspaper, Washington is $18.7 bln behind on its deliveries to Taiwan. For instance, it still has not sent to the island any of 208 Javelin antitank weapons or 215 surface-to-air Stinger missiles.
The Wall Street Journal says that Washington has failed to deliver almost $5 bln worth of weapons this year. That said, neither the Pentagon, nor the Department of State would acknowledge the backlog.
