U.S Congressmen Came To Taiwan, Beijing Responds

Click to see full-size image

The friendship between Taiwan and the United States has been getting stronger lately. The pace of friendship led to the second U.S. delegation visiting Taiwan this month. This time the U.S. official delegation consisted of congressmen led by Senator Ed Markey.

Markey is associated with Taiwan at certain points in his biography. In 1979 he voted for the Taiwan Relations Act, just at a time when PRC-US relations were very strained.

“Markey’s visit to Taiwan at the head of a delegation further demonstrates the strong support for the island by the U.S. Congress, especially at a time when China is escalating tensions in the Taiwan Strait and the region as a whole through military exercises,” the U.S. officials said in a statement timed to coincide with the visit.

At the same time, on the official level, the U.S. does not support Taiwan’s independence, which is very controversial politicy.

The delegation was welcomed at Taipei airport by Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs Yu Dalei, who has known Senator Markey for a long time. The visit lasted two days on August 14 and 15, and was one of the venues for another US Indo-Pacific Tour. This time the delegation included 5 officials: Democrats John Garamendi, Alan Lowenthal, Don Beyer, and Republican Amata Coleman Radwagen.

The topics of discussion were all the same as they had been previously between the U.S. and Taiwanese sides: U.S.-Taiwan relations, security in the region, trade and investment, supply chains, and so on. U.S. officials personally spoke with Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen on these topics.

The visit could not go without Beijing’s reaction. China was in any case planning to continue the exercises after Nancy Pelosi visits the island. However, this level of impudence on the part of the United States prompted Beijing not only to increase the intensity of training but also to increase the amount of equipment used.

” The Eastern Command has organized joint patrols and combat readiness checks during exercises in the sea and air space around the island of Taiwan, which is a decisive response and deterrence of American-Taiwanese collusion and provocations. The People’s Liberation Army of China continues to train and prepare for war, resolutely defend national sovereignty and territorial integrity and suppress any forms of separatism of “Taiwan independence” and attempts of foreign interference.” – spokesman for the Ministry of Defense of China claimed.

On August 14, 11 PLA aircraft and 6 ships were dispatched to the island’s air and sea territorial waters. The battle group included two J-11 fighters, two J-16 fighters, two J-10 fighters, four Su-30 fighters, and one KJ-500 radar aircraft. The entire Chinese brigade was met with an air patrol and missile deployment. A week earlier, the Taiwan Ministry of Defense had published a report on the activity of 22 Chinese planes.

On August 15, the Ministry of Defense of Taiwan monitored the activities of 30 aircraft and 5 ships during the PLA exercise due to the visit of the American delegation to the island.

On August 15, the Eastern Command of the PLA Air Force deployed the Kunjing-500 AWACS aircraft and Jian-11 fighters on combat patrol in the area of Taiwan’s Penghu Island.

 

 

According to the residents of Taiwan themselves, they are used to the fact that the PRC can invade the island by force at any time, so they do not pay much attention to the visits of American politicians and believe that the media pay too much attention to these visits instead of writing about the really important issues.

China’s development and rise is making the US take desperate measures

One of three cars is made in China and India is also now catching up. Most manufacturing is now based in Asia and well as the most important education growth. US is a loser and its only aim is to fan hate, racism and conflicts. US is the real BANANA REPUBLIC.

US has been planning to destroys Russia Ukraine EU and China even EU because EU is competitor of US trade 😆

Ashok Varma

Well, US is an idiot that is destroying itself. Just look at the pathetic shape of US economy and banana republic status. Millions of brainwashed moronic Americans now live in worse poverty than India even ever had. US is a racist neurotic selfish narcissistic failed state and its only export is war, global theft and racism. US is doomed. JAI RUS!

These wasteful large military drills of Beijing proved ineffective to deter the provocative visits of mericunts in quick succession .. The PLA could just simply saved the precious resources and instead launch a hypersonic with conventional warhead into the distant tip of the airport runway to send the message across that they quite mean business. Obviously the Chinese favoured to keep the $800 billion a year trade with US sacrificing its pride and dignity in the name of the mighty dollar. Such a shame.

May I give Xi Jinping some advice from a humble Swiss Citizen? Suppose a delegation from China were ever traveling to the US again. In that case, I kindly suggest the delegation visit the true representative Nations of the New World: the Navajo Nation, the Cherokee, the Prairie Band Potawatomi, the Shawnee, and the Miccosukee Nations. These venerable and sophisticated Nations whose territories have been violated by white invaders could need support from independent world powers like China, Russia, India, and Iran. Should Biden visit China one day, a representative of Xi Jinping may receive Sleepy Joe for a quick drink at a bar in downtown Hongkong or on a military base in the Spratly Islands. The American empire of homeless Europeans (America=Amerigo Vespucci) is crumbling anyway. Who cares to deal with homeless Europeans who never honored contracts and commitments in the first place?

I’m certain Xi Jinping doesn’t visit SouthFront for news especially the comment section. LOL

Probably not Ivan but America/UK/Israel are so worried by SF that they deploy their Paid Posters to try to bring down SF -witness the hack attack when SF posted an article on the 15 slaughtered Palestinian children–

BTW– the Zionist have now admitted it was them that killed the additional 6 children .

I wouldn’t bet on that. The world’s largest army has more than enough resources to monitor chat everywhere on earth. Israel has far less people and monitors everywhere.

Tommy Jensen

Presidents will always look after true intelligence. Thats why Obama constantly is poking his nose into these pages.

Tommy Jensen

People forget and people hope. Therefore they believe again and again that we keep our commitments and contracts………….LOL. Because they hope………………….LOL.

US is a desperate racist loser and wants Asians to die for Zionism aims. Most Indians reject US meddling in Chinese or any nations domestic affairs. That is the reason that India has staunchly supported Russian anti-Nazi operation in Russian Ukraine, which is a domestic Russian affair. India has always had a ONE CHINA policy and that will remain so.

USSA is bankrupt, financially, spiritually and morally. Add to that the drug addled insanity and transgendermutant sickness pervading all levels of its “society” and it becomes clear it’s all over except the bang.

Get the civil war reloaded already because humanity is sick to death of all things angloZionaZi.

Come on people, why didn’t China just keep Pelosi and this idiot from landing? If they are not afraid of confronting the US, why would they let people, who are basically persona non grata, even enter their airspace? They have turned back US military flights before, but can’t a commercial flight? They hold all the economic cards as well, right? They don’t fear losing the west as a trading partner, as the west no longer has a choice. Where would the west get their products? In an economic war, the US would lose hands down. Seems this whole affair is to create more chaos. I think this is another Ukraine, a set up for the destruction of western power and the creation of the multi-polar NWO.

Our friendship is more than a friendship. If anybody stand together in the fight against terror and for freedom it is US and its Ally Formosa, and our cooperation is more and deeper than close friends.
