The United States has said it is concerned about growing Chinese military activity near Taiwan.
The US estimates that China’s military pressure on Taiwan undermines regional peace and stability.
“We call on Beijing to end its military, diplomatic and economic pressure and force against Taiwan,” a State Department spokesman said Sunday, according to Reuters.
On October 2, Taiwan reported that 38 Chinese military aircraft had flown into its defense zone on Friday, making it Beijing’s largest incursion to date.
The Ministry of Defense has said that planes, including nuclear-capable bombers, have entered the area in two periods.
Taiwan has responded by activating its aircraft, as well as missile systems.
Taiwan has long complained about such actions by China.
Taiwan is a democratic region and says it is independent, but China sees it as a breakaway province / REL.
