Taiwan To Collaborate With The United State to Counter China’s Statism

Tsai Ing wen

Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen stated on Saturday that the coastline will continue to cooperate with the US and other democracies as it faces “continued absolutist expansionism” from China.

Following Tsai’s meeting with US House Speaker Kevin McCarthy in Los Angeles earlier in the week, Beijing announced three days of training operations around Taiwan on Saturday, describing it a “stern warning” to the self-ruled island’s government.

Tsai contacted with a US congressional delegation led by House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Michael McCaul in Taipei just hours after Beijing declared the exercises. Beijing considers self-ruled Taiwan is being part of its territory.

“We have faced continued absolutist expansionism in recent years,” Tsai said at the summit.

“Democracy cooperation has become even more important.” We will continue to collaborate with the United States as well as other comparable countries to safeguard the values of liberty and democracy, she added.

McCaul, who monitors all US military purchases to foreign countries, said Washington was working to get munitions to Taiwan as soon as possible.

“We are doing all that we can in Congress to expedite all those sales and provide you with the firearms you need to safeguard yourself, and we’ll prepare your army for peace, not war,” he said.

“It is critical that almost all democratic governments unite against tyranny and oppression, regardless of (Russian President Vladimir) Putin’s unprompted invasion of Ukraine or Communist China’s aggression against your country and the Pacific.”

 

China’s three-day action, termed “United Sharp Sword,” will end on Monday, according to the People’s Liberation Army’s (PLA) Eastern Theatre Command.

According to Shi Yin, a PLA spokesman, the military exercises will send aircrafts, ships, and troops into “the maritime zones and pilotage of the Taiwan Strait, off the northern and southern coastlines of the island, and to the island’s east.”

Taiwan’s defense ministry said on Saturday that it would answer to China’s operation “calmly, rationally, and seriously,” and that it would “Keep an eye on the situation according to the tenet of ‘not escalating conflicts, nor causing disputes” in order to defend its sovereign rights and protection.
