In news from Asia, the U.S. State Department has approved $95 million in additional military aid to Taiwan for its Patriot missile defense system. This comes as the United States, Australia and the United Kingdom announced plans to work together to develop hypersonic missiles in an effort to counter China militarily. The U.S. has also acknowledged it tested a hypersonic weapon in mid-March, just days after Russia fired one of its own hypersonic missiles in Ukraine.
