Taiwan confirms military training by US soldiers
The conflict between the US and China over Taiwan is coming to a head: Taiwan's President Tsai Ing-wen has now confirmed that a detachment of US soldiers is present on the island, training with Taiwanese security forces. There is cooperation with the US with the intention of "increasing our defense capability," Tsai told US television network CNN. When asked about the exact number of deployed US soldiers in Taiwan, she only said that it was "not as many as people thought." Taiwanese and international media have already reported on joint exercises. But Tsai's official confirmation could now further worsen relations with Beijing.
