The European Union and the USA criticize the military exercise near Taiwan: China fired several ballistic missiles – Topky.sk

-

China’s state television CCTV reported that the maneuvers began at 12:00 local time (06:00 CEST) and will continue until Sunday. The exercises will also include live ammunition fire. An AFP reporter reported shortly after they began that the Chinese military fired several projectiles in the Taiwan Strait. It later said in a statement that they hit precisely defined areas in the eastern part of the Taiwan Strait. According to Taiwanese officials, these maneuvers violate rules set by the United Nations, violate Taiwan’s territorial sovereignty and pose a direct threat to air and sea traffic. In addition, Taiwan reported on Thursday that unidentified machines, probably drones, had flown over its Jinmen archipelago. The Taiwanese military used flares to drive them away. China fired several ballistic missiles near Taiwanese waters Taiwan’s Ministry of Defense announced Thursday that China fired several ballistic missiles near Taiwan during military exercises. This information was also confirmed by the Chinese army. AFP and DPA agencies inform about it. A statement from the Ministry of Defense stated that the Tung-feng missiles were fired into the waters northeast and southwest of Taiwan around 1:56 p.m. local time (07:56 a.m. CEST). The Taiwanese army did not specify in which locations the missiles landed or whether they flew over the territory of Taiwan. Colonel Shi’i, a spokesman for the Eastern Division of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army, said Chinese forces had launched a conventional missile attack on a predetermined area off Taiwan’s east coast. All the missiles hit their targets accurately, he added. An AFP reporter also reported on the launch of several projectiles in the Gulf of Taiwan shortly after the start of the military exercises. EU and US officials criticize the exercise EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell condemned on Thursday the planned military exercise of the Chinese army in the vicinity of Taiwan, which Beijing announced in response to the recent visit of the speaker of the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, to Taiwan. The United States also called these maneuvers “irresponsible”. AFP informs about it. “There is no justification for using (Pelosi’s) visit as a pretext for aggressive military activity in the Taiwan Strait. For lawmakers from our countries, international travel is normal and routine,” Borrel said on Twitter. The head of the EU’s foreign policy is currently in Cambodia for a meeting of heads of diplomacy of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). The ministers of the 10-member ASEAN association also issued a joint statement on this issue. It stated in it that the current situation in the Taiwan Strait may lead to “destabilization of the region and ultimately to serious confrontation, open conflict and unpredictable consequences.” The organization of Chinese military exercises near Taiwan is not considered correct even by the United States. “Any time the military conducts activities that include possible missile testing, live-fire exercises, fighter jets buzzing in the sky and ships moving at sea, there is the potential for an incident,” said Jake Sullivan, the US president’s national security adviser. At the same time, he expressed hope that China will behave responsibly. Photo Gallery (2) Jake Sullivan

Beijing sees the trips of foreign representatives to Taiwan as a sign of recognition of the island’s independence. Therefore, he perceives the visit of the president of the American House of Representatives, which ended on Wednesday, as a provocation.
