PLA Ends Taiwan Missions, But Regular Patrols Possible-Statement

TAIWAN

William Yang at DW News: "After 7 days of military exercise encircling Taiwan, the Eastern Theater Command of China’s PLA announced that they have completed all missions around Taiwan, but they also hinted in the statement that they might regularize petrol in the Taiwan Strait."

  • "The PLA said in the statement that they have effectively inspected the combat ability of their troops, and they will closely monitor any change in the situation in the Taiwan Strait while continuing to train their troops for potential combats."
  • The increase in patrols over the median line in the Taiwan Strait and into Taiwan's Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) likely to continue until at least the five-yearly Chinese Communist Party congress in autumn/winter this year. Chinese President Xi Jinping seeking a highly unusual third term in office, and maintaining a strong stance against perceived US intervention in sovereign territory seen as key in retaining support.
