Chinese core formation in the southern Taiwan Strait

Chinese core formation in the southern Taiwan Strait

Based on the statement of the PLA Eastern Combat Command Zone, the People’s Liberation Army of China conducted exercises in the area of ​​the Penghu Islands, located in the southern part of the Taiwan Strait. 

“In the course of joint combat exercises and patrols, pilots of the Eastern Zone of the PLA Combat Command conducted surveillance of the Penghu archipelago,” the report said.

All actions are due to the fact that “the United States and Taiwan continue their political games that destroy peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait,” this is what the department says.

The day before, a delegation of US congressmen led by Senator Ed Markey arrived in Taiwan. It was reported that the delegation will meet with senior Taiwanese officials to discuss US-Taiwan relations, regional security, trade and investment, global supply chains, climate change and other important issues of mutual interest.
