Cornyn, Clinton discuss F-16 for Taiwan

Texas Senator John Cornyn has opened direct negotiations with US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton over the release of a long-delayed report to the US Congress on the state of Taiwan’s air force.The report is now 16 months overdue and Cornyn believes it would provide powerful evidence to support Taipei’s request to buy 66 F-16C/D aircraft.
