The location of #Taiwan Island has made it #geopolitically vital to the #U.S. plan to not just encircle #China but also southeast #Asia.

“They thought Taiwan (region) is nothing but the perfect natural aircraft #carrier that can’t be sunk,” Taiwan compatriot and commentator Zhong Xiangyu said, arguing the U.S. is trying to use Taiwan Island to build an aggression network with other military bases in the #Indo-Pacific to achieve their goals, rather than really caring about the people of Taiwan.

“They’ve written policy papers about how they will target maritime shipping, how they can close down the straits. And they’ve reconfigured U.S Marine Corp specifically for this path,” said Brain #Berletic, a Bangkok-based geopolitical analyst, explaining the long-term U.S. plan to contain China by meddling in the region.

In this interview, CGTN’s reporter Li Jingjing talks to Taiwan compatriot and commentator Zhong Xiongyu as well as geopolitical analyst and former U.S. Marine Brian Berletic to analyze the real U.S. agenda in the Indo-Pacific region.

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 The Republic of China (ROC) is no longer a member of the UN, having been replaced by the People’s Republic of China (PRC) in 1971.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.
