South China Sea: Taiwan to ‘buy missiles’ from US as Beijing increases threats

Taiwan’s defence ministry has insisted the nation will buy more military weapons from the US to ward of China. DW News’ correspondent William Yang explained to DW News host Biresh Banerjee tensions were high in the South China Sea region. He also reflected on Taiwan adapting to the potential threats from China and adjusting its strategies.

Mr Banerjee said: “Mr Yang, how has Taiwan responded to recent Chinese military activity around the island?”

Mr Yang replied: “This afternoon we learned that the Taiwanese defence ministry is planning to buy more long-range missiles from the US.

“In recent weeks we have learned that Taiwan is also launching its own defence programme and developing its own weapons.

“As we see China’s pattern of increasing the amount they are sending their military aircrafts into Taiwan’s ADIZ (Air defence identification zone) in the southwestern part.”
