Taiwan tensions surge as chinese military assets approach: ministry reports


Taipei : Tension has increased due to China’s increasing activities in Taiwan. Taiwan’s Ministry of National Defense on Monday claimed to have spotted three Chinese military aircraft and six naval ships operating near its waters. At the same time, two Chinese aircraft have entered its south-western air defense identification zone.

As of 6 a.m. local time, three Chinese military aircraft and six Chinese People’s Liberation Army Navy ships were detected, the ministry reported. The most worrying thing about this is that two Chinese planes had entered Taiwan’s south-western ADIZ.

Let us tell you that Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) is an area of airspace in which a country works to identify, locate and control aircraft in the interest of national security. Taiwan’s armed forces responded immediately by monitoring the activities and taking necessary precautions to protect Taiwan’s sovereignty and security. This incident has further increased the ongoing tension between Taiwan and China. Let us tell you that Beijing often conducts military maneuvers and exercises near the self-ruled island. China officially considers Taiwan as its part.

The presence of PLA military assets near Taiwan remains a sensitive issue, raising concerns about potential tensions in the region. The Government of Taiwan has called for continued international support and attention to ensure stability and peace in the Taiwan Strait.
