Taiwan’s president, Ma Ying-jeou, urged the United States Monday to provide
further assistance with the country’s military submarine program, which has seen little progress in the past 11 years.
During a meeting with Raymond Burghardt, chairman of the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT), Ma expressed hope for help from the US as Taiwan continues to pursue its submarine program through a combination of indigenous development and imports.
Burghardt arrived in Taiwan a day earlier on a routine visit, his 17th trip to Taiwan. The AIT represents US interests in Taiwan in the absence of diplomatic ties. [FULL STORY]
