China.- Taiwan launches a week of military exercises in the face of increasing tension with China

-

MADRID, 13 Jul. (EUROPEAN PRESS) –

Taiwanese authorities have launched a week of military exercises and maneuvers on Monday to defend themselves against a possible “invasion” in the face of increased tension with China.

The exercises began this Monday morning, as explained by the island’s Joint Special Operations Command, and includes combined maneuvers, according to information from the Taiwanese CAN chain.

The maneuvers take place in the context of an increase in tension with China after Beijing approved the national security law on Hong Kong and after a violation of Taiwanese airspace by the Asian giant.

President Tsai Ing Wen will oversee the exercises, which will include launching a torpedo from a submarine for the first time since 2007. The Army has so far deployed several F-16 fighters, as well as maritime and cargo patrol aircraft to the east coast of the island.

For their part, several infantry units have moved to “covered” or “camouflaged” areas in order to simulate a possible invasion. For next Wednesday, the authorities have planned a joint exercise with the Police and the Coast Guard.
