The Facts

On Tuesday, Taiwan’s Defence Ministry voiced its fears that the expected deliveries of Stinger anti-aircraft missiles could end up being delayed.
The deliveries are expected to be delayed, as the missiles are in high demand in the Ukraine, where they’ve proved effective against Russian aircraft.
The deputy head of Taiwan’s Army planning department, Chu Wen-wu, clarifies, “There may be a risk of delayed delivery of the portable Stinger missiles this year due to changes in the international situation.”
Taiwan added that it is currently pressing the US for timely deliveries of the shoulder-fired Raytheon Technologies’ (RTX.N) Stinger missiles.
The US must deliver 250 missiles to Taiwan by 2026, according to a deal arranged in 2019.
