Communist aircraft frequently harass Taiwan U.S. Indo-Pacific commander: to help Taiwan enhance defense
Russian satellite news agency Sputnik reported that Philip Davidson said during a video appearance at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), a Washington think tank, that the Indo-Pacific region is one of the most critical regions in the world and will face many challenges between now and 2026. He expressed concern that the Chinese Communist authorities may try to change the regional status quo, and that such changes would be permanent. China seeks a new world order, in which Chinese national power is more important than international law.
During the conversation, Davidson spoke at length about the U.S. Department of Defense’s proposed Pacific Deterrence Initiative, which he said is one of the priorities of the U.S. Department of Defense’s annual budget.
When asked about his views on tensions in the Taiwan Strait, Davidson said Chinese air operations in and around Taiwan have increased over the past few months, even to the point of intruding into Taiwan’s Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ), and that Chinese maritime police vessels have recently been operating around the Diaoyutai Islands. Davidson is deeply concerned about the next six years.
The U.S. government should assist and encourage Taiwan to make defense investments to enhance defense strength and intimidation, as well as provide Taiwan with asymmetric warfare capabilities to assist in Taiwan’s defense, so that Taiwan’s military can enter combat status at any time, Davidson said. It is extremely important for the U.S. government to continue arms sales to Taiwan to help achieve the intimidation strategy.
Davidson also mentioned that the U.S. needs a land-based Shenton missile defense system on Guam to defend against Chinese air and sea threats, and that Guam’s air defense and missile defense will be a top priority for the U.S. military.
