According to CIA Deputy Director David Cohen, Chinese President Xi Jinping has set the Chinese military to take control of Taiwan by 2027, not excluding a military scenario.
At the same time, US intelligence does not yet believe that the Chinese leadership has made a final decision to start implementing this scenario.
REFERENCE. The Republic of China (Taiwan) is a state recognized by 17 countries, Ukraine de jure considers it a part of the PRC. Before being defeated by the communist regime of Mao Zedong in the civil war, it controlled the entire territory of China. Since 1949, it has controlled only Taiwan and a few small islands. The PRC considers Taiwan its province and declares its desire for “peaceful reunification.” Taiwan says it is ready to offer armed resistance if invaded.
President of the U.S.A Joe Biden said in May that Washington would use the military if China tried to take Taiwan by force. “We support the One China policy, but that does not mean that China has, excuse me, jurisdiction to use force to take over Taiwan,” he explained Washington’s position.
- On August 30, the White House announced its intention to push a $1.1 billion arms deal to Taiwan through Congress.
