Taiwan’s armed forces have ‘right to counter attack,’ military warns after China’s large-scale drills

Taiwan’s president, Tsai Ing-wen, said on the weekend that the island will continue modernizing its defensive combat capabilities “to deal with military expansion and provocation from the other side of the Taiwan Strait.” She warned that “as we procure military hardware, we still remain dedicated to promoting our national self-defense capabilities.”

Taiwan’s military reported on Sunday that Chinese Y-8 anti-submarine warfare aircraft made sorties along the disputed strait throughout the weekend, as the island celebrated National Day.

Arms sales to the island of Taiwan “seriously harms China’s development interests and security,” Beijing’s state-run Global Times daily wrote in late September. However, it stressed that whatever the island of Taiwan buys, “one or two pieces of weapons can’t change the power imbalance” between the mainland and Taiwan.
