    US warplanes fly near Taiwan as PLA wraps up live-fire drills. (2019/08/30)

    The United States dispatched three warplanes on missions around Taiwan on Thursday, in what was viewed as a show of strength against Beijing. The flights took place as the Chinese People's Liberation Army finished a series of live-fire drills in the East China Sea. Military analysts say that the U.S. movements reflect positively on the state of Taiwan-U.S. ties.

    In the East China Sea, the PLA staged live-fire drills to protest Washington's plan to sell F-16Vs to Taiwan. The U.S. responded Thursday, dispatching three warplanes on missions around Taiwan.

    This series of Chinese military actions left the U.S. no choice but to do it this way, at this particular place and time. It had to remind China's PLA and its leadership that the American military is a player here. It's what the U.S. has long said: "We are still here."

    The expert says that the U.S. has been sending a clear warning to China. Last week, a U.S. navy research vessel crossed the Taiwan Strait and made a port call at Keelung. The PLA wrapped up its live-fire drills yesterday, which was also the day Chinese troops entered Hong Kong. Meanwhile, Taiwan's defense ministry made a statement about the U.S. warplanes, saying it had monitored their activities from start to finish.

    In this case, the fact that the government made the statement unprompted gives people the sense that the R.O.C. military has a degree of cooperation with the U.S. military in this region - that both parties have some sort of alliance.

    Under the Tsai Ing-wen administration, Taiwan-U.S. relations have been at their best in recent years. Through a variety of actions, the U.S. has made clear its interest in working with Taiwan to ensure the stability of the Taiwan Strait.
