Yuan said of the formal notification and expected 30-day congressional approval process.
Yuan said political squabbling in Taiwan caused delays in approving Taipei's arms budget, which finally passed the legislature in June.
Yuan said that after the inauguration in May of Taiwanese leader Ma Ying-jeou, the Bush administration asked for a "direct message" from Taiwan about whether the government wanted the arms.
