The Taiwanese navy said that the delivery of two Oliver Hazard Perry-class guided missile frigates from the United States is likely to be delayed.

According to local media reports, the delivery has been postponed until 2016 Tuesday. Taiwan has requested to purchase the two Perry-class frigates, which were previously scheduled to be delivered in 2015 to replace the Navy's two aging Knox-class frigates.

When asked about the report, the Navy said the delivery schedule could be delayed, but did not give specific information on when Taiwan can take delivery of the frigates.

The US Senate has not yet agreed to the sale because it is focusing on other issues at the moment, the Navy said, stressing that there is no problem with the sale.
