Tensions are rising around the island of independence claimed by China. US President Joe Biden said on Thursday, October 21 that the United States was ready to defend the country militarily in the event of an attack from China.

In the face of recent Chinese pressure on Taiwan, the United States has announced that Beijing is ready to defend the island as its territory. Tensions between the two countries continue to rise. For its part, China responded decisively to US threats, forcing Taiwan to legally claim ownership.

China’s force show

“What is changing today is not China’s intentions, but China’s ability. Today, it has military capabilities that did not exist 15 or 20 years ago and, frankly, is changing the balance of power.”, Explains Antoine Pondes, a researcher at the Strategic Research Foundation that specializes in China. For months, China has been wanting to prove its power with invading planes, fighters and bombers on Taiwan’s radar screens. For now, this is only at the point of threat, but considering the rhetoric of Chinese politicians, the risk of the country taking action is very high.
