China is furious when US Navy warships pass near Taiwan. Beijing called the move provocative and called the US a major threat to regional peace and security. Two US warships passed through the Taiwan Strait on Friday. One of them was said to be the US Navy warship USS Kidd and the other Coast Guard ship, Munro. The US Navy said its ships passed through international waters in the Taiwan Strait.
China considers Taiwan as its island territory
Let us tell you that China considers Taiwan as its island territory. He has also threatened to take over the area by force. The Chinese Defense Ministry issued a statement on its website on Saturday saying, “We strongly protest and strongly condemn.” The ministry said that the US is the biggest threat to the peace, stability, and security of the 160-km Taiwan Strait.
Recently, the US did military exercises near Taiwan
It is noteworthy that China considers such steps of America as a challenge for itself. He recently conducted military exercises near Taiwan. In recent years, the US has signed several major defense agreements with Taiwan. Even China is outraged by this.
It is worth noting that a few days ago, Taiwan’s Foreign Minister Joseph Wu said that China wants to occupy its country like the Taliban. China has been maintaining its mind to occupy Taiwan for a long time while claiming it. After the rapid fall of the US-backed government of Afghanistan, there has been a debate about China’s intention to occupy Taiwan in a similar way. The Chinese media is bracing that Kabul’s fate is enough to suggest that Taiwan can no longer trust the US.
