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

Media Coverage | September 24, 2013

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."
