Taiwan threatens to take ‘retaliatory measures’ against China

On Wednesday, Taiwan informed that countermeasures will be taken if Chinese warplanes or warships enter any territory of Taiwan.

Taiwan is always in fear of Chinese invasion. China claims Taiwan as theirs. At one point it would be linked to mainland China; China threatens to use force if necessary.

China always teases tiny Taiwan. Chinese warships and warplanes often cross the sea and airspace to enter Taiwan.

China escalated such provocative actions after US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited Taiwan earlier this month.

At that time, a direct threat was made by Taiwan.

Maj. Gen. Lin Wen-huang, who has warned that Chinese aircraft and warships often enter its territory in violation of Taiwan’s sovereignty, said the closer they come to Taiwan, the greater the response.

He also said, “We will use the Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard to intercept the planes and ships of the People’s Liberation Army of China that enter our 24 nautical mile and 12 nautical mile zones.” Self-defense and counter-attack measures will be used when Chinese ships come within our 12 nautical zone.
