Beijing/Taipei, Reuters. China’s intentions regarding Taiwan are not visible. Recently, Chinese President Xi Jinping threatened Taiwan with war and said that China is committed to defend its sovereignty at any cost. Not only this, the infiltration of Chinese aircraft in Taiwan’s airspace has also increased in recent days. Not only this, China has also carried out military exercises near Taiwan. In this regard, China says that this exercise has been done keeping in mind the forces promoting the formal independence of the island.

China, which disrupts peace in all the countries of the world, especially in neighboring countries, says that this exercise is a ‘justifiable’ step to protect peace. China also said that the purpose of this military exercise is to prevent interference from outside forces. Actually China claims Taiwan as its territory. The tension between the two countries is at its worst for the last 40 years.

Speaking at a regular news briefing in Beijing, Ma Xiaoguang, spokesman for China’s Office of Taiwan Affairs, said that the current tensions between the two countries are due to the collusion of Taiwan’s ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) with foreign powers and Taiwan’s power. The demand for freedom is to be instigated. China’s military exercise has been done with the intention of challenging this collusion.

Ma Xiaoguang said that China conducted this military exercise in an indirect reference to US support to Taiwan. Its purpose is to prevent separatist activities and protect the country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, as well as to safeguard peace and stability in the Taiwan Straits. This action is completely justified.

It should be noted that recently Chinese President Xi Jinping had said that Taiwan will definitely have to be merged with China. After this, Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing Wen said that any action by China to annex Taiwan will be given a befitting reply.
