Taiwan accuses China of invading Su-30 and J-10 fighters into the island's air defense zone

Taiwan accuses China of invading Su-30 and J-10 fighters into the island's air defense zone

The Ministry of Defense of Taiwan claims that Chinese aircraft are approaching the borders of the island nation for the second day in a row. Taipei sees this as a threat to national security.

Indeed, China has been conducting large-scale military exercises near Taiwan's borders in recent weeks. This includes the flights of the Su-30 and J-10 belonging to the Air Force of the People's Liberation Army of China. On Thursday morning, Chinese aircraft appeared in the air defense zone in the southwest of the island. The Taiwanese air defense forces managed to spot a Su-30 fighter, a J-10 fighter and a Y-8 anti-submarine aircraft.

Taiwanese Foreign Minister Joseph Wu called the actions of the Chinese side a threat to peace and stability in the region. The military department also made similar accusations against the neighboring state, urging the world community to pay attention to China's "aggressive actions".

However, for Beijing, as you know, the Taiwan issue is one of the most painful. China does not recognize Taiwan as a sovereign state and believes that the existence of such a country is a direct violation of the territorial integrity of the Celestial Empire. There is no doubt that if it were not for the support from the United States and its allies, China would have long ago tried to solve this problem. It is no coincidence that the Chinese armed forces pay great attention to the development of amphibious operations, increase the amphibious capabilities of their fleet.

The PRC restrains from more decisive actions only the risk of intercession for Taiwan by the United States and the start of a full-scale war in the region. But China has never concealed that it is ready for an armed confrontation if necessary. Taiwan, in turn, is also developing the capabilities of its armed forces, giving priority to the organization of coastal and air defense. Like China, Taiwan also conducts regular military exercises, practicing actions to organize the defense of the island in the event of an attempt by a potential enemy to attack.

    there is a feeling that someone (we will not point the finger) is intensively shaking the boat, because 2/3 of a century without world massacre is somehow not interesting.

        There are citizens who believe that the USSR was not needed nafig with its socialism, scoop, and so on ...
        The issue of a bipolar world is still relevant, because if the world is unipolar, the hegemon begins to fiddle with everyone he can reach, sucking every drop from these countries.

      As far as I understand, the air defense zone is farther than the air territory of Taiwan.

      Did you not pay attention:
      They invaded not Taiwan's airspace (where there is a legal right to use weapons), but a certain air defense zone.
      What is this zone and where it is located is not clear.

      "invaded" and "approached the borders" are completely different things. Here either the Taiwanese are driving the snowstorm, or the translators

    In general, China considers Taiwan its territory. There is no Taiwan even in the UN, and at the suggestion of the United States. China decided to moderate the ardor of the Taiwanese. Hong Kong lives there and nothing. True, it pushed a little, well, that's the point.

      China counts a lot. On the contrary, the Taiwanese consider themselves to be real Chinese, and those who live in the PRC as their temporarily lost compatriots.

      Yes, looking at Hong Kong, Taiwanese are just eager to be in its place)

      The only thing that really threatens Taiwan now is economic dependence on China, but this is a double-edged sword, remember the story with Huawei and TSMC. And in military terms, China's moderation has not yet grown in order to seize Taiwan with the help of conventional weapons laughing

These people who lived in Manchuria and other places in East Asia after its capture by China were sheltered by Chiang Kai Shi, as gratitude for the loyalty and kindness of his daughter-in-law, a Russian woman from Uralmash - Faina Vyakhreva, who at one time was the first lady of Taiwan. - Dzyan Fanliang. But the Smolensk Square doesn’t want to restore relations with Russian emigrants and give them a chance to return to their homeland.
