TAIWAN TO SLASH ARMED FORCES

0

TAIPEI: Taiwan is planning to slash its armed forces by up to 20 percent from 215,000 over the next five years, in the latest sign of warming ties with former rival China. Defense Minister Yen Ming said the military would be cut to 170,000 to 190,000, but that defense capabilities would not be compromised in the project to build “smaller but leaner and more professional armed forces.”
