China did not waste any time in using U.S. President Joe Biden’s showcase of his weakness and inability to lead to its advantage The Communist country is aggressively taking action against Taiwan, a place China has claimed as its territory.
Per a Global Times report, the Chinese People’s Liberation Army has launched “joint live-fire assault drills” in several locations close to Taiwan on Tuesday. It comes in response to “recent collusion and provocations by the US and Taiwan secessionists.”
“The PLA Eastern Theater Command on Tuesday dispatched warships, anti-submarine warfare aircraft and fighter jets in surrounding maritime and aerial areas near the southwest and southeast of the island of Taiwan for military exercises including joint live-fire assaults, and also for testing the command troops’ integrated joint operation capabilities, Senior Colonel Shi Yi, spokesperson of the command, announced on the same day,” the news outlet further mentioned.
Will China Take Over Taiwan?
Apart from this, China also warned Taiwan that it should be “trembling” because the U.S. won’t be able to protect it from invasion. Also, the CCP told the island nation that it “can’t rely” on the U.S. president in a crisis.
The Chinese military demonstration happening off the coast of Taiwan comes with new demands for America to stop issuing contracts, arms sales, and military connections with the island nation, according to a Disclose TV report that cited China’s foreign ministry.
China’s aggressive advances and possible takeover of Taiwan would follow upon the Communist country’s incursions into Hong Kong and the oppression of its residents who were once free.
