    Officials in Taiwan have criticised the US decision not to sell them new and more powerful F16 fighter jets, accusing the Obama administration of bowing to Chinese pressure.

    Meanwhile, a US congressional panel is set to question top officials over the deal this week.

    Al Jazeera's Steve Chao gained exclusive access to Taiwan's F16 programme and sent this report.
