The U.S. State Department has approved two deals worth nearly $430 million combined covering the sale of aircraft spare parts to Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office (TECRO).

The Defense Security Cooperation Agency delivered the required certification notifying Congress of these possible sales today.

The TECRO in the United States has requested to buy the expansion of the Cooperative Logistics Supply Support Arrangement for stock replenishment supply of standard spare parts, consumables, and accessories, and repair and replacement support for the F-16, C-130, Indigenous Defense Fighter (IDF), and all uother aircraft and systems or subsystems of U.S. origin, as well as other related elements of logistics and program support. The estimated total cost for standard spare parts and non-standard spare parts is $330 million and $98 million.

This proposed sale is consistent with U.S. law and policy as expressed in Public Law 96-8.

The proposed sale will help improve the security of the recipient and assist in maintaining political stability, military balance, and economic progress in the region.

The proposed sale will contribute to the sustainment of the recipient’s aerial fleet, enhancing its ability to meet current and future threats while providing defensive and transport capabilities critical to regional security, the Pentagon said.
