The exercises of the Chinese armed forces continue in Taiwan

The Eastern Theater Command of the People’s Liberation Army (official name of the armed forces of the People’s Republic of China) is continuing joint combat exercises and training, as scheduled, in the waters and airspace around the island of Taiwan.

On the fourth day of operations, the Command reported that activities are focusing “on joint ground attack and long-range air strikes”. The maneuvers were motivated by China as a response to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taipei, defined as a “serious political provocation”. Beijing considers Taiwan an “inalienable” part of its territory to be reunified even by force, if necessary.

Donald Trump, from the stage of the Conservative Conference (CPAC), attacks the Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi for the visit to Taiwan. ‘What was she doing? And everything she touches turns to …. ‘ he told an audience of conservatives in Dallas, Texas, who filled in the gap with an expletive.

‘She fails. The women brings chaos,’ he said adding that she had given China the cover it needed to flex their muscles.

‘She played right into their hands, because now they have an excuse to do whatever they’re doing,’ he said.

‘And I will tell you it would have never ever happened in a million years under Trump, I can tell you.’
