Taipei. A senior US State Department official arrived in Taiwan on a three-day visit amid an ongoing conflict between the US and China. China lodged a strong objection to this. 18 fighter jets from China made clear their intentions by flying close to Taiwan.
Taiwan’s Ministry of Defense said two Chinese bombers and 16 fighter jets flew across Taiwan’s Air Defense Identification Area. He said that we took quick action and sent the fighters and drove the Chinese planes. At the moment, every move of China is being monitored.
Let us know that China has been continuously opposing the US official’s visit to Taiwan and before the US official reached Taipei on Thursday, the US has received strong warning and threat of retaliation for this visit from China.
However, the US has decided to enhance diplomatic relations with Taiwan, ignoring China’s threats and warnings.
China said it necessary to protect national sovereignty
Let us tell you that the Chinese Ministry of Defense spokesman Ren Guoqiang, who entered the Taiwanese border, said that this is part of our practice and was done in response to the current situation of the Taiwan Strait to protect national sovereignty and territorial integrity Is a valid and necessary action.
China’s foreign ministry also defended the move. Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said China has a strong will, full confidence and sufficient capacity to thwart all external interference and separatist actions by Taiwanese independence forces.
Explain that China empowers Taiwan as its share, while Taiwan considers itself an independent nation. China is strongly opposed to the formal dialogue of any other country with Taiwan.
Taiwan-US relationship increases China’s problems
Let me tell you that after 40 years of growing tension with China, an American government official visited Taiwan in August. China had lodged a strong objection to this. China does not want the US to interfere in Taiwan’s case.
Although Taiwan is constantly getting closer to the US. Agreements have been reached in both countries for defence deals worth thousands of crores of rupees. Crutch’s visit was preceded by US Health Secretary Alex Azar in August. It was a formal visit by an American government official since 1979.
It is a series of steps taken by the Trump administration to strengthen ties with Taiwan, including arms sales and support for Taiwan’s participation in international forums.
Before the crutch’s visit to Taiwan, US Ambassador to the United Nations Kelly Kraft had lunch on Wednesday with the top Taiwan official in New York. In that meeting, he described Crutch’s visit as historic.
