China and U.S. in the crosshairs over close call

Published

on

The provocation of a Chinese warship sailing 2000ft off the bow of a U.S. warship near Taiwan has escalated tensions.

 
As the U.S. and Chinese military chiefs stood in the same room in Singapore, a dangerous manoeuvre was taking place in the South China Sea.

A Chinese naval vessel sailed directly in front of a U.S. warship, in a supposed breach of international law.

The U-S describing this maneuver as “unsafe” but China disagrees. China claims the democratic island of Taiwan as part of its own territory.

Beijing says the strait is part of its exclusive economic zone but the U-S regularly sail through and flies over the area.

The incident in the Taiwan Straits comes after the U-S Defence Secretary and his Chinese counterpart were together in Singapore.

The pair weren’t meeting but they were in the room for a defence conference.

Li Shangfu is China’s Defence Minister who’s suggesting the U-S and its allies are creating danger in the region.

He’s asking one question, “what’s the point of going there?”

And he followed on with the saying “In China we always say: ‘Mind your own business.’”

David Zhang, who’s the host of China Insider, says China is now playing a more dangerous game, akin to a Cold War mentality. #china #south china sea #taiwan #united states #featured

China initiated military ‘punishment’ exercises in the waters surrounding Taiwan in response to the newly inaugurated President Lai Ching-te.

These drills come amid escalating tensions in the region, with Beijing asserting its sovereignty over Taiwan, denouncing the inauguration of President Lai Ching-te and labelling this one of several “separatist acts”, as reported by Reuters.

These military manoeuvres are seen as a show of force and a warning to Taiwan and its supporters against any moves perceived as challenging China’s territorial claims.

President Lai has repeatedly offered talks with China but has been rebuffed.

He says only Taiwan’s people can decide their future, and rejects Beijing’s sovereignty claims.
