China sends fighter jets towards Taiwan

Date: 25 September 2021 Tags: Miscellaneous
  • China sent 19 aircraft towards Taiwan amid rising tensions across the straits, in the latest messaging from Beijing to both Taipei and Washington.
  • Beijing has in the past used its air force as a form of signalling, for instance recently dispatching fighters to coincide with visits of U.S. diplomats to Taiwan.
  • The latest show of force came as Taiwanhad submitted an application to join the 11-nation CPTPP (Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership) trade deal, days after China said it had formally applied to join the Pacific pact.
  • China views Taiwan as its province, although both have been ruled separately since the end of the Chinese Civil War in 1949 when the Kuomintang (KMT) and Chiang Kai-shek fled to the island.
