Videos Show Military Preparedness, Build-up In China Amid Tensions With Taiwan -by Ecork

Beijing said a Pelosi visit would contradict the one-China strategy.

New Delhi:

As tensions continue to grow over US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan, social media users reported seeing a large deployment of armored vehicles and other military equipment near the border with the island nation which China claims as its own territory.

Kannada social media handle “Yin Sura” posted a video clip showing a column of Chinese armored vehicles on a busy road while driving past it in a car.

Another video, taken from a footbridge, gives a bird’s eye view of tanks rolling down the roads.

The next video in the thread shows the trucks with the trucks on top of them.

Beijing has warned that Ms Pelosi’s visit will have “very dark” consequences. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said the visit was not a personal act and that if the US went ahead with it, China would “rightfully take any necessary countermeasures”.

The White House, meanwhile, has warned China against recklessness and deployed four warships to the east of the island on “routine” deployments.

Both Chinese and Taiwanese media have also posted slick videos showing their war preparations and showing off deadly weapons.

A social media user named “flash” posted a video showing Taiwan’s defense’s combativeness.

Meanwhile, China-affiliated media The Global Times posted a video with the title “Ready for battle!” showing off your attack ship.

Russia has backed China, warning Washington that such a bold move would put the United States on a collision course with Beijing.

Chinese President Xi Jinping warned US President Joe Biden against playing with fire on Taiwan in a call last week but three sources told Reuters on Tuesday that Pelosi was still set to visit the island.

Beijing says a Pelosi visit would defy a one-China policy Washington has vowed to uphold.
