The United States will be on the side of Taiwan, China's exercise in warships

A number of Chinese warplanes have been reported to have crashed into Taiwan's air defenses on Wednesday. Taiwan says Beijing has been demonstrating strength along its coast for days. As part of this, China has carried out these provocative activities. Taiwan's foreign ministry has said it will continue fighting with the last drop of blood in the event of an attack. The United States, meanwhile, has reiterated its support for Taiwan.

The autonomous democratic island nation of Taiwan has repeatedly complained that China's military activity around its borders has increased in recent months, Reuters reported. The Chinese air force continues to violate Taiwan's air defenses almost every day. China said in a statement on Monday that an air force warship was taking part in a military exercise near Taiwan. 

The Chinese military People's Liberation Army (PLA) on Monday conducted exercises in western and eastern Taiwan with a large military fleet, including the aircraft carrier Liaoning, according to US media CNN. Experts see such military exercises as an extreme threat to Taiwan and its ally the United States.

Reuters reported that Taiwan's Defense Ministry issued a statement yesterday about China's provocative actions. The ministry claimed that 15 Chinese planes, including 12 warplanes, had entered its air defenses. Among these aircraft was a submarine-destroyer, which flew south through the Bashi Channel, passing through Taiwan and the Philippines. The ministry added that the Taiwanese air force sent aircraft to intercept and warn Chinese aircraft.

The U.S. Navy has spoken out against the escalation of military tensions between China and Taiwan. Yesterday, they said, John S. McCain carried out a "routine" operation along the route of the Taiwan Strait. But China has described it as an "extreme threat" to regional peace and stability. China's Easter Theater Command said yesterday it had detected the presence of a ship and condemned the United States for disrupting peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait.

After the end of the Civil War in 1949, Taiwan was separated from China. Taiwan claims to be an independent state. But Beijing is trying to annex Taiwan by claiming its territory. For this reason, China has been trying to limit Taiwan's international activities. The two sides are vying for influence in the Pacific. Taiwan has been recognized by a few countries.

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu has expressed deep concern over China's growing military presence in the South China Sea, which borders Taiwan. He told reporters yesterday that the United States and its country were deeply concerned about the risk of conflict. "As far as I know, direct observation of the region's activities has given US policymakers a clear idea that a possible Chinese attack on Taiwan is imminent," he said. We are also ready to defend ourselves without any hesitation. If a war needs to be fought, we will fight. We will continue to fight till the last day to protect ourselves.

Journalists questioned Ned Price, a spokesman for the US State Department, about tensions between China and Taiwan. In response, Price said the United States was "deeply concerned" about China's continued intimidation of the region, including Taiwan. He reiterated his commitment to co-operate in defending Taiwan.
