In a statement, the department said it had approved the communications sale to help improve the security of the recipient and assist in maintaining political stability, military balance, economic and progress in the region" and to contribute to the recipient's goal to modernise its military communication's capability in support of their mission and operational needs .

The approval is just the latest in a series of such steps the Trump administration has taken to boost Taiwan's defences over the course of the last several months.
