Tension between China and Taiwan: After a long time, tensions can once again be observed between China and Taiwan. In fact, China on Tuesday released a plan to deepen integration between the coastal province of Fujian and Taiwan. According to the South China Morning Post report, in this plan, the Chinese government has also mentioned the benefits of cooperation with Taiwan, in addition to the display of military power and the use of warships.
China’s intention is to influence elections
China presented this unification plan as Taiwan holds presidential elections. It is believed that China did this with the intention of influencing the elections in Taiwan. These elections are scheduled to take place in January 2024. China has been asserting its claim to Taiwan for decades and has continually increased military pressure on the country. At the same time, Taiwan declares itself independent.
An attempt was also made to encircle the country by sending dozens of warships.
Taiwanese officials say China deployed an aircraft carrier and about two dozen Chinese warships near Taiwan’s territorial waters this week, ahead of the release of that unification plan. He has been trying to encircle Taiwan for a long time. Last year there was a war situation between the two countries in this regard. China then fired several missiles at Taiwan.
Taiwan rejected the Chinese proposal
At the same time, Taiwan completely rejected China’s proposal. On Wednesday, Wang Ting-yu, a lawmaker from Taiwan’s ruling Democratic Progressive Party, said China’s unification plan was ridiculous. Other Taiwanese leaders also criticize China’s plan.
