The US Is In Talks With Taiwan About Selling SeaGuardian Surveillance Drones

The United States is negotiating with Taiwan to sell at least four American reconnaissance Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), according to Reuters, citing six sources.

According to their information, the deal, which includes the sale of four SeaGuardian UAVs, is estimated at $600 million. It's worth noting that the potential agreement is generally approved by the State Department, but it is also necessary to get approval from the US Congress.

The Agency notes that this deal may increase tensions between China and the United States.

It is reported that the agreement will be the first after the administration of US President Donald Trump officially eased restrictions on the export of military unmanned aerial vehicles to foreign countries, reviewing the regime for controlling missile technology.
