MBABANE:United States(US) President Joe Biden has signed into law a $94bn foreign funding bill that includes military aid to Israel, Ukraine and Taiwan, ending a months-long legislative impasse in Washington over the assistance, Aljazeera reported on Thursday afternoon.

Taiwan is a diplomatic ally for eSwatini, Africa’s last absolute Monarchy.

Efforts to reach Jeremy Liang, the Taiwan Ambassador to the Kingdom of eSwatini proved unsuccessful at the time of compiling this report.

“Biden hailed the passage of the law on Wednesday as a “good day for world peace”, saying that the measure makes the United States safer”, Aljazeera reported.
