The Taiwanese Ministry of National Defence, R.O.C., has detected 30 Chinese warplanes and nine naval ships around Taiwan Island.

Before the incursions into Taiwanese territories, China considered the Island of Taiwan as part of the Chinese nation and was committed to reclaiming the island with the Chinese mainland.

However, in a post on X (formerly Twitter), Taiwan’s Ministry of Defence said the Chinese Air Force warplanes and warships were detected in the country’s air defence identification zone (ADIZ) as early as 6 a.m. (local time) on Wednesday.

The Taiwanese military “monitored the situation and employed appropriate force to respond”, its government added.

Meanwhile, the Taiwanese authorities said 36 Chinese warplanes and six naval ships were detected last month towards the island.

This increasing military activity on Taiwan’s territories marks Beijing’s commitment to the reunification of Taiwan with the Chinese mainland.

China’s military activities in Taiwan have also increased following the United States’s announcement to ensure peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait and in the South China Sea.
