Biden administration warns China of consequences of "invasion of Taiwan's air defense zone"

79

The US State Department demands from Beijing to stop any pressure on the administration of the island of Taiwan. Instead, Washington is calling on China to engage in constructive dialogue with Taipei.


The Financial Times reports.

We urge Beijing to end its military, diplomatic and economic pressure against Taiwan and instead engage in constructive dialogue with its democratically elected representatives.

- said in the message of the American State Department.

The message comes in response to actions by the Chinese military, whose six H-6 bombers, four J-16 fighters and one anti-submarine aircraft on Saturday, according to Taipei, entered the island's airspace.

US State Department spokesman Ned Price called these actions by the Chinese army another "attempt to intimidate the neighbors" and said that they are causing concern for the American authorities.

The administration of newly elected President Biden has warned China of the consequences of an "invasion of Taiwan's air defense zone." Thus, it signals that it will take a tougher stance on Beijing.

Taiwanese experts believe that the latest "sortie" of the Chinese military may be a signal to Washington that the PRC is dissatisfied with the invitation of Taipei's official representative to the United States, Ms. Xiao Bi-Him, to Joe Biden's inauguration. Earlier (even under Trump), the US authorities for the first time congratulated the President of Taiwan on his election victory.

    And China immediately shook in fright from the statement of the Bidono-Khariev administration.

        There is a complete analogy between Taiwan and the LDNR.

        The Russian Foreign Ministry should publicly appeal to the Biden Administration with a demand for an equal US attitude towards Taiwan and the LPNR.

        The United States will of course ignore such a note because the LDNR is pro-Russian, not pro-American. But this will once again demonstrate to the whole world the dual American approaches.

        That is, for the United States, it is not a matter of democracy or sovereignty, or the territorial integrity of a country, but whether something is useful for the US establishment, or not.

          Taiwan until 1971 represented China in the UN and still claims to the territory of China, although not very actively lately

            Legally, the PRC and the Republic of China are the same, since both were born in the crucible of revolution.
            Then it is necessary to recognize the legitimate Empire of China, which no longer exists.
            But in fact, it is necessary to recognize the right after the force.

      Of course, mattresses are unlikely to risk being directly involved in a war with China because of Taiwan, especially considering that their bases are scattered in the region, including Japan and South Korea, are at arm's length from China and the PRC can provide filling thousands of coffins in a matter of hours carcasses of American marines, besides, for all American pribluda, China has its own, similar in impact and resistance. So the US understands that they will receive unacceptable damage and will most likely try to put pressure on economically.

      The consequence is that while the Armed Forces of the Republic of China are technologically superior to the PLA of the PRC. And when attacking Taiwan, the PLA is likely to fail. At the same time, it is impossible to hit the island with nuclear weapons. It is the same as if Russia were to strike at its territories occupied by terrorists with nuclear weapons.

        What kind of nonsense are you talking about? What technologically, what quantitatively, Taiwan is losing, tanks are old (M48 with a 105mm cannon, very funny), submarines are old, aviation is old.

    And what specific "consequences" are we talking about - something is not said. America will shoot down Chinese planes? Or is Taiwan being spurred on? So in the second case the second Georgia will turn out 08.08.08. And in the first case, it is even worse. Only the first case will not happen - if the Kims were scared like a hedgehog with their bare ass, then it will be even funnier with China.

      I don't think the PRC will actually land on Taiwan. Both economies are too intertwined, China benefits from the existence of a side by side such as a hostile and independent island, in fact, a close trading partner. For no one will impose any sanctions on Taiwan, and through it, any prohibitions are quite successfully bypassed. And for Taiwan, access to the gigantic PRC market is extremely beneficial. So why should they fight? Why capture? When everything is so well and conveniently arranged.

      And to jangle with a weapon is for order that the mattress makers did not suddenly suspect something. IMHO, of course ..

        So I thought about the same thing. This whole Taiwan-China carousel is ONLY profitable for the US. A kind of Ukraine was opened close to China. And neither Taiwan nor Ita does not need it. For how many decades they have lived side by side, each one considers himself to be the "real" China - and nothing. Until America needed to get in ...

        So all the same it is interesting - with what "consequences" the Americans scare China?

    Oh, these "horror stories" ...

    In 15 years, Taiwan will complete its submarine program, and China will complete the main phase of its aircraft carrier program. Then the "X hour" will come. Either a peaceful unification "one China - two systems", or a lightning-fast offensive air-naval operation ... the United States cannot help Taiwan in any way. For their AUG will be awaited by the Chinese AUG ...

        no, they will squeeze them out by our methods, called "sea bulk", ours there in the Black Sea squeezed them out like that.
        and if the mattresses make at least one shot, then the hot phase of the war with shooting and sunken mattress submarines may begin (because in fact the mattresses started the war).
        but if the Chinese have enough courage

            no submarine. but AB can be rammed with a dry cargo ship.
            you can mine the tracks and announce it to the whole world, but the minesweepers are already squeezed out in bulk.
            if someone blows up, it is his own fault, they were warned of the same type.

                a dry cargo ship is a small sacrifice compared to the expenses that will go to repair AB.
                yes, the dry cargo ship will not be allowed to the AB, because the order, but the ships of the order can be squeezed out and several dry cargo ships can be placed on the way of the AUG, moreover, it is desirable to be loaded with something like sand, it is cheap if it sinks, and hard if it hits the side.
                and their mines will not interfere with the landing, because they will not be scattered in the strait, and if the Taiwanese themselves mine the strait, then the flag is in their hands, they will suffer much more from mining the island than China. since China was not going to land on Taiwan.

                    the Americans are not going to interfere with the landing of the Chinese, but generally to remove them from the disputed waters (Spratly and others).
                    with mattresses, this is called ensuring freedom of navigation.
                    here with the "liberators" you can fight so that even without shots, they will not poke their attention to the Chinese.

      And the American AUG 365 days a year around Taiwan "cut circles"?
      There are no US naval bases on the island. The Democratic ships visit Taiwan sporadically. And AUG is so "quite episodic" ...
      At the time of the operation, it will be enough to meet "democratic forces" on the distant approaches .. But then the Americans will have to decide whether to start the third world war because of the "island with the Chinese" or not ...
      The US Navy's nuclear submarines will pose the most serious threat to the entire operation (if it begins). But we know very little about the real Chinese achievements in anti-submarine defense and mine weapons. The Chinese know that they are much inferior in the submarine, so it is logical that they should devote considerable efforts to the development of the submarine.

    Well, then let the PRC government urge the US and NATO forces not to come close to the borders of Russia. These actions of the Alliance army are yet another "attempt to intimidate the neighbors"
    We urge the Pentagon to end its military, diplomatic and economic pressure against Moscow and instead engage in constructive dialogue with its democratically elected representatives.
    This behavior is of concern to the Chinese authorities.
    Thus, she signals that she will take a tougher stance towards Washington.
    Well, Moscow will preface a similar message about the US provocations in the waters of the PRC.
    Who for such a decision put your thumb (not middle) to the top.

    instead enter into a constructive dialogue with its democratically elected representatives.

    It's a pity there is no decoding of what a constructive dialogue is and what result it should lead to.

    So what, and if the Chinese start shooting, words cannot stop them. Yesterday the Chinese adopted a law allowing the coast guard to shoot at violators. It seems that while the old senile people are in power in the United States, I remember who I am in general, China can start uniting on its own terms .Gonkog too thought for centuries English!

    Taiwan is the territory of China. And I am confident that China will return the island under its control.

    There is a complete analogy between Taiwan and the LDNR.

    The Russian Foreign Ministry should publicly appeal to the Biden Administration with a demand for an equal US attitude towards Taiwan and the LPNR.

    The United States will of course ignore such a note because the LDNR is pro-Russian, not pro-American. But this will once again demonstrate to the whole world the dual American approaches.

    That is, for the United States, it is not a matter of democracy or sovereignty, or the territorial integrity of a country, but whether something is useful for the US establishment, or not.


    of course ... they put on democracy and justice, they will press while the world is sitting on a dollar needle

    That was a challenge to the United States, not to Taiwan !!! China imposed sanctions on 20 high-consigned US officials a week ago. The Chinese are tired of Latin hypocrisy, and today the United States is a little angry dog ​​for China. China is the most powerful power in the world in all directions, the United States can do nothing but bark like an angry dog! wink wink

    You might think that these six H-6 bombers, four J-16 fighters and one anti-submarine aircraft have invaded striped airspace.
    And when they themselves poke their nose into all the holes, do they not worry that they will be cheated on the very hello?

    After seeing what happened in Hong Kong, how many Taiwanese would like to return with China ??? The answer depends on whether the conquest of Formosa will be easy for China. China is a military power, but it hasn't fought in decades. The landing operation on Formosa is no joke, there are few beaches to land on, all known, mined and under fire. In addition, a Chinese soldier, whom they told that the brothers are waiting for him in Formosa, who needs to be rescued, how will he react to a population that may not want to be saved ????

    China already has Hong Kong's experience, so the annexation of Taiwan is just a matter of time and acceptable methods. I do not think that China will go for a direct invasion, but the organization of some colored turbidity is quite. Moreover, it is not in trend anymore.

    Is this something new in international law - "air defense zone"? What does this mean? Where is it located - 200, 300 or 400 kilometers from the state border?
