Taiwan expressed deep concern over the recent surge in Chinese military activity, describing it as an escalating threat to regional stability. The Taiwanese defense ministry reported a significant presence of Chinese military aircraft, including jets that participated in drills alongside China’s Shandong aircraft carrier in the Pacific, near Taiwan and the Philippines.

This comes amid a NATO summit where China’s role in supporting Russia’s actions in Ukraine was criticized, highlighting ongoing global concerns about Beijing’s strategic intentions. Taiwan’s defense ministry detailed sightings of 66 Chinese military aircraft, with a notable number flying close to Taiwan’s southern and southeastern borders.

President Lai Ching-te emphasized Taiwan’s commitment to bolstering its defenses against what he described as increasing provocations and intrusions by China. He underscored the growing challenge posed by China’s “grey zone” tactics, aimed at testing Taiwanese defenses without direct conflict.

In response to these developments, Taiwan welcomed NATO’s heightened focus on peace and stability in the Indo-Pacific region, noting that various nations, including Japan and Australia, are also intensifying military activities in the face of regional tensions involving China and Russia.

The situation underscores Taiwan’s ongoing security concerns amid escalating geopolitical maneuvers in the region.
