In the past two years, the CCP has sent military aircraft to Taiwan almost every day to increase military harassment and force intimidation against Taiwan. The CCP and Taiwan have recently accelerated their confrontation due to successive applications for joining the Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP). China intends to increase its pressure on Taiwan by showing off its military power.
Japan’s Yomiuri Shimbun reported that since last year, the CCP’s military aircraft entered the Taiwan’s air defense identification zone on a regular basis. A warning is issued for those who apply to join the CPTPP to expand their participation in international activities.
