China Taiwan News: Navies of 26 countries including the US are participating in the ‘RIMPAC’ exercise. The special thing is that India’s Navy and Special Forces are also participating in this exercise.
The world’s largest naval exercise led by the US Navy
China Taiwan News: Frustrated by US Parliament Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan, China may be conducting a major military exercise to encircle Taiwan, but it may have forgotten that at this time the world’s largest naval force led by the US Navy in the Pacific Ocean. Exercise is going on. Navies of 26 countries including the US are participating in the ‘RIMPAC’ exercise. The special thing is that India’s Navy and Special Forces are also participating in this exercise.
China’s intentions: The Eastern Theater Command of China’s PLA Army has started a major military-exercise in the South China Sea around Taiwan, with the intention of blocking Taiwan’s main port and shipping-lanes. The purpose of this maneuver is also to prevent Nancy Pelosi from flying to South Korea. Because due to the exercise in the sea, the flight of planes of any other country can be very difficult in the sea adjacent to Taiwan. But China’s plans can be turned away because at present the world’s largest naval exercise is going on in the Pacific Ocean under the leadership of America’s Indo-Pacific Command. This exercise is Rimpack i.e. Rim of Pacific. By the way, this exercise has been taking place in the Pacific Ocean every two years for the last 40 years, in which the navies of the US and US allies take part. But this year it has become very important due to the China-Taiwan dispute.
25 thousand soldiers are taking part
A total of 26 navies, including the US Navy, are participating in RIMPAC-2022 (29 June-4 August). A total of 38 warships, three submarines, more than 30 UAVs, 170 military aircraft and 25,000 soldiers are participating in this exercise, including the USS Abraham Lincoln, one of the largest aircraft carriers of America’s Seventh Fleet.
China entered Taiwan’s airspace:
China is infuriated by US Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan. That is why he violated Taiwan’s airspace on Tuesday as well. During this, 21 military aircraft of China flew very close to Taiwan. These included 8 J-11 fighter aircraft of the Chinese Air Force, 10 J-16 fighter aircraft, an Awax reconnaissance aircraft, an EW and an eLint aircraft. Apart from fighter planes, warships are also involved in the PLA’s maneuvers, which started on Tuesday night.
America is fully alert
It is noteworthy that before carrying out special military operations (ie attack) against Ukraine, Russia also mobilized its army by conducting a major maneuver on the border of Ukraine. This is the reason why the whole world is taking the Chinese PLA army maneuvers seriously and America is fully alert.
