Taiwan prepara exercícios militares anuais

April 9, 2024 - Nos exercícios militares deste ano, Taiwan vai simular um cenário
em que a China transforma subitamente os seus exercícios militares
habituais em redor da ilha num ataque real.

China, which views democratically governed Taiwan as its territory, has been staging regular exercises around the island for the past four years, to pressure Taipei to accept Beijing's claim of sovereignty, despite Taiwan's strong objections.

Taiwan starts its main annual Han Kuang exercises this month with table top drills, extended from a more usual five days to eight given the number of scenarios to be included, followed in July by actual combat exercises, the defence ministry said.
