Taiwan bolsters military over fears of possible China attack | DW News

DW News published this video item, entitled “Taiwan bolsters military over fears of possible China attack | DW News” – below is their description.

China has been increasingly threatening its neighbor with its military. The numbers of Chinese air force incursions into Taiwan’s air defence zone have gone up, as has the rhetoric from Beijing. China views Taiwan as a renegade province that needs to be re-united with the mainland.

This has forced Taiwan to double down on modernising its own military. Some members of Taiwan’s elite, Amphibious Reconnaisance and Patrol Unit, the ARP, are being tested to see if they are good enough to join the Marine Corps’ elite force of frogmen.

In This Story: Taiwan

Taiwan, officially the Republic of China, is a country in East Asia. Neighbouring countries include the People’s Republic of China to the northwest, Japan to the northeast, and the Philippines to the south.

The political status of Taiwan is complicated. The Republic of China (ROC) is no longer a member of the UN, having been replaced by the People’s Republic of China (PRC) in 1971. Taiwan is claimed by the PRC, which refuses diplomatic relations with countries that recognise the ROC. Taiwan maintains official diplomatic relations with 14 out of 193 UN member states and the Holy See.
