The Philippines grants the US four military bases

The United States has decided to adopt a system that gives them the possibility of having the Indo-Pacific area under control, given the growing tension that is being observed between China and Taiwan. The Philippines gives access to four military bases to US troops. A move that does not leave the Chinese authorities indifferent and which demonstrates the will to stand by the island in the event of a Chinese attack but also Washington’s willingness to impose itself in the region.

Thirty-four fighter jets and 9 Chinese army ships approached Taiwan’s air and sea space, as had already happened several times in recent weeks. This is what the Ministry of Defense of Taipei denounces. The Chinese military’s assets “were reported around Taiwan at 6 am local time today,” the Taiwanese military said in a statement. 20 of Beijing’s 34 planes reportedly entered the air identification zone southwest of the island state.

Taiwan’s Ministry of National Defense (MON) found 57 Chinese warplanes and four PLA naval vessels near the island in one day. Report informs citing Taiwan News. According to the publication, observations of the airspace and sea around Taiwan were made from 6:00 a.m. on Jan. 8 to 6:00 a.m. on Jan. 9.

Of the 57 People’s Liberation Army (PLA) aircraft, 28 were found in the Taiwan Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ). Among them, six Shenyang J-11 fighter jets, two Su-30 fighter jets, two Chengdu J-10 fighter jets and two Harbin BZK-005 reconnaissance drones crossed the median line of the Taiwan Strait, Taiwan’s military department said.

Another 12 Shenyang J-16 fighters and a KJ-500 airborne early warning and control aircraft were spotted in Taiwan’s southwest air defense zone.
