Taiwan urged Beijing to stop “irresponsible provocative actions” after China sent 56 warplanes into Taiwan’s defense zone in the largest-ever air incursion. Monday becomes the fourth day straight of incursion by Chinese aircrafts.
The defense ministry said 36 fighter jets and 12 H-6 nuclear-capable bombers including other planes crossed over into Taiwan’s airspace. Four other planes entered its southwest air defense identification zone at night making the record of sending 56 Chinese warplanes to Taiwan’s defense zone.
The mainland affair council (MAC) blamed Beijing for “seriously damaging the status quo of peace and stability in the Taiwan strait” with the large number of repeated incursions to harm the Taiwan territory.
“We demand the Beijing authorities immediately stop its non-peaceful and irresponsible proactive actions” MAC spokesperson Chiu Chui- Cheng exclaimed in his statement.
China is the culprit for causing tensions between the two sides of the Taiwan Strait and it has further threatened regional security and order,” he added saying, Taiwan will never compromise and yield” to threats.
Since Friday when China marked its national day, the whole country stood up and embarked on their journey by accomplishing the greatest mission of flying 150 aircrafts in the Taiwan defense zone making Taiwan vulnerable and weak.
Further, the United States also urged the country to stop their disruptive activities and let everyone be in a state of peace and harmony.
Responding to the US government, China said that they are not near to any disruptive activities but it was the US who was being provocative and harming the national peace with its arms sales to Taiwan.
“China is resolutely opposed to this and takes necessary countermeasures,” it added.
“Engaging in Taiwan independence is a dead end. China will take all steps needed and firmly smash any Taiwan independence plots,” the ministry said. China’s determination and will to defend national sovereignty and territorial integrity is unwavering”.
Taiwan expressed its distrust towards the country China and claimed Chinese incursions as irresponsible provocations. The country further also added, Xi regime is engaging in a grey zone to tear down the forces with unlawful strategies.
