China, which is constantly sending fighter jets near the Taiwan border, will now get a befitting reply. Taiwan has deployed the most advanced versions of the F-16 fighter aircraft in its air force. The self-governing island has beefed up its defense capabilities in the face of growing threats from China. Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen on Thursday inducted 64 advanced F-16V fighter jets at the air base in Chialei.
This aircraft is part of a total of 141 F-16A/B aircraft of Taiwan, which is an older model of this aircraft. Tsai pointed out that the upgraded aircraft shows the strength of Taiwan’s cooperation with the US defense industry. They have been inducted into the Air Force at a time when the island’s status is the main reason for tension in US-China relations. China has increased tension by sending fighter aircraft to the buffer zone of Taiwan.
China has voiced its claim on Taiwan and President Xi Jinping told President Joe Biden in a virtual summit this week that challenges to China’s claim to the island would mean playing with fire. The Chinese military is deploying its weapons and tanks as preparation for a ‘potential’ attack against Taiwan. Some videos going viral on Chinese social media are making such claims.
After these videos surfaced, the fears of ‘third world war’ have increased. According to Hong Kong pro-democracy activist Eileen Chang, these videos are being fiercely shared on ‘Weibo’ across China. Weibo is a Chinese social media platform controlled by the government. It is seen as an alternative to Twitter.
