China, US tensions over Taiwan escalate
As global tensions over Chinese military drills around Taiwan continue to spike, the relations between world’s superpowers United States and China worsen further. In the latest, China has decided to end cooperation with the United States on several important issues. China’s discontent over US Nancy Pelosi’s Taiwan visit triggered huge military drills around Taiwan, which came after repeated warnings by Beijing against the same. And now Chinese ministry has hit out at US suspending talks with cooperations. These suspensions include agreements on climate change, as well.
Remember China and us have pledged to work together to accelerate policies to tackle climate crises. However, now the fate of the deal seems uncertain. The National Security Council spokesperson, John Kirby has criticized this is move as quote unquote fundamentally irresponsible. White house also confirmed that Washington has summed the Chinese ambassador to US to condemn the quote-unquote, irresponsible behavior of Beijing over Taiwan.
“As we’re talking about the march after China’s action, we summoned a PRC ambassador to the White House on Thursday to march him about the PRC’s provocative actions. We condemn the PRC’s military actions which are irresponsible again at odds with our long-standing goal of maintaining peace stability across the Taiwan Strait. We made clear to the ambassador that Beijing’s actions are of concern to Taiwan to us and to our partners around the world.” Karine Jean-Pierre, Press secretary, white house.
Meanwhile, China has announced that its military drills around Taiwan will continue till Sunday. Taiwan reported that 68 Chinese planes and 13 warships crossed the median line that runs down the Taiwan Strait.
According to Taiwan’s defense ministry in the latest statement, we condemn the communist military for deliberately crossing the median line of the strait and harassing the sea and air around Taiwan. The present premier for Beijing considered China to be their evil neighbor.
“China is an evil neighbor showing its military power at the gate of our country using military exercises to destroy the busiest lanes of international shipping. China’s action has received condemnation from neighboring countries and the World. We call on China to take care of the people with a full heart because that is the most important thing.” Su Tseng-Chang, Premier Taiwan. Taiwan’s defense ministry also informed that it had fired flares late on Friday to warn off seven drones flying over it’s outlying Kingman Islands and to one unidentified aircraft flying over its outline Matsu idslands. Adding to that, the ministry said the troops were on high alert on both of these areas.
