China Warns Taiwan’s Decision To Confirm Presence of US Troops Could ‘Trigger War’

By Brianna McKee | Digital Reporter

China’s propaganda mouthpiece the Global times says Taiwan’s decision to confirm US troops are stationed on the island has “crossed the bottom line” and could “trigger war”.

The Global Times has slammed Taiwan’s leader Tsai Ing-wen, claiming she was “inviting trouble” by confirming the presence of United States military trainers on the island nation.

During an interview with CNN on Thursday, Ms Tsai said the threat presented by Beijing was increasing “every day” and admitted for the first time American troops were training Taiwan’s military.

Chinese fighter jets made unprecedented incursions into Taiwanese airspace over the last month amid escalating tensions between Taipei and Beijing.

In the first five days of October alone Taiwan reported 150 incursions from Chinese fighter jets, nuclear-capable bombers and other military aircraft.
