Tension between America (USA) and China (China) regarding Taiwan has reached its peak. After US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi landed in Taiwan, the Chinese military (PLA) has started live fire drills from 6 locations around Taiwan. Due to the war-like situation between the two superpowers of the world, the threat of third world war is looming. The US and China have deployed nuclear-armed warships in the South China Sea. The head of the United Nations has warned that one mistake could lead to disaster.
In Taiwan’s parliament, Nancy Pelosi declared that the US would never leave Taiwan alone, while Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen said we would not succumb to threats. Pelosi said everyone is proud of the friendship with Taiwan. We will strengthen economic ties with Taiwan. China, on the other hand, has warned that it will take all necessary steps to protect its sovereignty. China said that America would be responsible for all the consequences after this incident. China said that Taiwan would definitely integrate with the mainland.
China sent 21 fighter jets to the Taiwan border
Chinese affairs expert Joe Mac Reynolds believes that China is indicating through missile tests and live fire drills that it is not going to go to war immediately. In a fast-moving scenario, if the two sides collide, the situation could spiral out of control. China has also indicated this. After Nancy Pelosi landed in Taiwan, China sent 21 fighter jets to the Taiwan border. According to local media, the Chinese military has started its targeted military operation around Taiwan. China has imposed several economic sanctions on Taiwan.
Due to this move of China, its relations with America have reached a very bad state. Pelosi believes the visit is necessary to protect democracy and thus recognizes Taiwan as a sovereign country. China is not happy with this and has strongly opposed it, citing the US ambassador. This is the largest US visit to Taiwan by a top leader in 25 years. The world is divided over Pelosi’s visit, while there are people who are supporting this visit, and there are also a large number of people who are worried about the threat of World War III. Today is considered very important in terms of relations between the two countries.
Could there be a third world war?
Experts believe that the visit of Nancy Pelosi may increase tension between Chinese and American forces. The armies of both the countries are in constant touch with their chiefs to assess the situation and predict future course of action. He said that even after these tensions, the threat of third world war is very less. However, this move of Nancy Pelosi is seeing a new cold war between China and America. America’s arch rival Russia is seen standing with China in this cold war. On the other hand, the US expects help from Japan, South Korea and ASEAN countries.
