The Taiwanese women paying for weapons training amid fears of a Chinese invasion | ITV News

ITV News published this video item, entitled “The Taiwanese women paying for weapons training amid fears of a Chinese invasion | ITV News” – below is their description.

Weapon training courses in Taiwan have seen a spike in interest from residents as ordinary citizens take up arms as fears their country could be invaded by China rise.

China claims its self-ruled democratic neighbour Taiwan as its own territory, and has vowed to take it back.

The Chinese Navy is conducting drills in the south China sea, as it intensifies its focus on Taiwan, which rejects its huge neighbour’s claim of sovereignty and says only its people can decide the island’s future.

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.
