Regarding the internet media reports on “Chien Lung-Class Submarine Hull Rights Not Obtained, US Expresses that No Support will be Offered for Domestic Produced Submarines” and “US Objects to Upgrade of Attack Capacities of Chien Lung-Class Submarines”, the Navy Command Headquarters clarified today (5th) that, the report contents are unfactual, and expressed its deepest regret.

The Navy Command Headquarters further expressed that, the promotion of the “Indigenous Production of Military Ships” to ensure “Autonomy in National Defense” has always been the unchanging policy of the Navy. To meet the expectations of all sectors, the military will abide by the principles of practice and sound development to strive for the comprehensive planning of building new generation submarines, and urges the citizens to offer their support in the building of a reliable national defense force.
