US to provide additional security assistance to Taiwan: US Defence Secretary

The presidential drawdown authority, or PDA, is a type of authority that expedites security assistance and has helped to send arms to Ukraine. Earlier this month U.S. President Joe Biden’s administration planned to send weapons aid worth 500 million dollars to Taiwan through PDA.
