The Canadian Ministry of Defence said recently that Canadian reconnaissance planes were repeatedly interfered by Chinese fighter jets at close range while carrying out the United Nations sanctions monitoring mission on North Korea. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on June 6 condemned China‘s move as “irresponsible” and “provocative.” In a related statement, Canada said such worrisome behavior was “increasingly frequent.”
Australia’s Anthony Albanese condemned on June 6 that a Chinese Air Force fighter jet made a “dangerous act of aggression” against an Australian reconnaissance plane over the South China Sea on May 26.
Australian Defence Minister Richard Marles revealed that the Chinese J-16 fighter jet accelerated and cut into the front of the Australian military plane, releasing aluminum foil interference wires.
Yao Cheng told Radio Free Asia on June 6 that one of the reasons for the CCP’s frequent provocations recently is that U.S. President Joe Biden’s visit to Asia has strengthened Western military alliances and effectively prevented and curbed the CCP’s maritime expansion.
However, Yao Cheng said that he believes that the more direct reason is that there is a serious crisis in China‘s internal affairs. If Xi Jinping wants to be re-elected at the 20th National Congress, he will deliberately create conflicts in the military to create an emergency atmosphere and divert attention. However, the CCP is here In this kind of political operation, he only dares to use tricks to provoke them, and he does not dare to go wrong.
Yao Cheng said that the CCP can only watch the US reconnaissance planes run to Shanghai to take pictures of the 003 aircraft carrier, and Japan is even more powerful. It has already proposed that the Self-Defense Forces should be stationed in Taiwan, and the CCP does not dare to fight back.
Another view is that Jiang Zemin, Zeng Qinghong and other anti-Xi forces are trying to provoke foreign military conflicts and take the opportunity to replace Xi Jinping.
