US announces arms sales to Taiwan

The Obama administration says it plans to approve more than $6 billion in arms sales to Taiwan. The sale is sure to strain U.S.-China ties.
The sale would include helicopters, missiles and material related to Taiwan's defense communications network.
Details were posted Friday on a Pentagon Web site.
The sale is subject to a period of congressional review.
It includes 114 PATRIOT Advanced Capability-3 missiles and other equipment costing more than $2.8 billion; 60 UH-60M Black Hawk helicopters, costing $3.1 billion; information systems, at $340 million; and two OSPREY Class Mine Hunting Ships, at a cost of about $105 million; and other items.
