(CNA, By Ku Chuan and Joseph Yeh) Taiwan's Cabinet passed a draft bill this Thursday to finance the NT$250 billion purchase of sixty-six F-16V fighter jets from the United States. Premier Su Tseng-chang called on lawmakers to pass the bill in order to counter China's growing military threat against Taiwan. According to the vice defense minister, the military will most likely finalize the arms sale sometime next year. <Accessed 2019-09-08>
