Exercícios militares da China cercam Taiwan

By Jordi Bou

August 3, 2022 - A China vai realizar exercícios militares em larga escala e testes de mísseis numa demonstração de força após Nancy Pelosi, a presidente da Câmara dos Representantes dos EUA, ter feito uma visita controversa à ilha, sendo a amais alta responsável política dos EUA a visitar Taiwan em 25 anos.

The military exercises could risk war in one of the world’s most dangerous flashpoints. China claims Taiwan as part of its territory and has long threatened to use force if Taipei refuses to submit to its rule indefinitely or if an external power interferes with its claim.

Three of the six zones Beijing has declared off-limits for exercises intrude into Taiwan’s territorial waters – a huge escalation.

The drills announced for later this week could amount to a blockade of a country whose economic lifeblood comes from exports and which is highly reliant on energy imports.
