Wu said that 10 Chinese warplanes took off in Taiwan’s airspace on Monday. He said, ‘We are ready to defend ourselves without question. If we needed to fight a war, we would fight a war, and if we had to defend ourselves till the last day, we would defend ourselves. ‘
The Foreign Minister had also said that he has also deployed an aircraft carrier group near Taiwan for the exercise. Explain that China does not recognize Taiwan’s democratically elected government. Chinese President Xi Jinping has said that the ‘integration’ of the two cannot be postponed indefinitely.
Wu said in a ministry briefing, ‘They want to attract the Taiwanese people by sending condolences, but at the same time they are sending their military aircraft and military ships to intimidate the Taiwanese people. ‘ Wu said, ‘China is sending mixed signals to the Taiwanese people….’
It is worth noting here that due to the huge improvement in China’s military capabilities and its increasing activities around Taiwan, America’s concerns have also increased. Explain that the United States is legally obliged to assure that Taiwan is fully capable of defending itself.
Let us tell that Taiwan and China separated in the year 1949 between civil war. Most people of Taiwan are in favor of maintaining the current state of de facto independence while continuing strong economic exchanges with the mainland. However, China is not in favor of it and asserts its claim on Taiwan.
