"Taiwan is postponing purchases of U.S.-made Black Hawk helicopters and Patriot air defense systems that are part of a $6.4 billion U.S. weapons package that has been strongly opposed by China, officials said. A lawmaker said Tuesday the delay was caused by budgetary shortfalls, while the Defense Ministry blamed it on manufacturing delays." (05/10/11)
