US troops are training Taiwan to fight China


The United States is secretly training Taiwanese troops to fight China. That’s why US troops have been stationed in Chinese Taipei for more than a decade.

The U.S. government has deployed troops in Taiwan to help prevent the use of U.S. military equipment and the landing of Chinese troops. News from the Financial Times.

The US media, the Wall Street Journal, first reported the news. The U.S. Department of Defense released a report based on the information.

It says US troops have been stationed on the autonomous island of Taiwan since September 2006. It was the last year of former President George W. Bush’s term.

A U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak on condition of anonymity, said the U.S. military was conducting exercises on the beach with Chinese troops as part of a training exercise to prevent Chinese troops from landing in Taiwan.

The last time the US government admitted to having troops in Taiwan was in 1979. After that, Washington started following the ‘One China Policy’.

Under the one-China policy, the Chinese government has been claiming sovereignty over Taiwan. Most countries in the world follow the one-China policy.
