China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) continued to send 16 warplanes over the southern waters of Taiwan. Following last Friday’s (October 1) record-setting total of 38 jets on two separate occasions, the next day (October 2) the PLA flew 39 jets, breaching the defense zone. The latter too involved a pair of incursions, with one wave coming during the day and the next in the evening. That means PLA sent warplanes toward Taiwan for three consecutive days, despite leaders in Taipei bristling and issuing condemnations over the major Friday and Saturday incursions. Thus it appears the follow-up Saturday and Sunday flyover was a glaring ‘message’ from Beijing signaling that it doesn’t plan to heed any words of condemnation or warnings from Taiwan.
The United States is concerned about the CCP’s military provocation in Taiwan. The U.S. State Department spokesperson Ned Price warned that China’s military activity near Taiwan risks miscalculation and undermines regional peace and stability,“We urge Beijing to cease its military, diplomatic, and economic pressure and coercion against Taiwan”
It added that the United States, Taiwan’s biggest supplier of arms, would continue to help the government maintain a sufficient self-defense capability.
