Radio France Interviews EWI's Firestein on Taiwan Arms Sales Report

Vice President David Firestein talked with Jan van der Made of Radio France Internationale about the institute's latest policy report, Threading the Needle: Proposals for U.S. and Chinese Actions on Arms Sales to Taiwan. Firestein, co-author of the report, states that the time is ripe for decision-makers to act, challenging the current status quo on this contentious issue in the U.S.-China bilateral relationship.

"The better status quo would look like a very modest and incremental adjustment in U.S. arms delivers to Taiwan," Firestein argues. "At the same time, the Chinese could also make a modest adjustment in their armaments posture vis-à-vis Taiwan."
