During an exclusive interview with the Internet program yesterday, the newly appointed chairman of the Huang Fuxing Party Headquarters and retired general of the KMT, Ji Linlian, targeted the Chinese military planes repeatedly intruding into the airspace of our air defense identification zone. Ji argued that the communist army is a full-scale military exercise, and he believes that “it is not a disturbance to Taiwan.” After the statement drew strong criticism from the Director of National Security and the Democratic Progressive Party, Kuomintang Chairman Zhu Lilun said this afternoon (20th) that Ji Linlian’s remarks had another point of emphasis, which was to call on the government to change the content of the training exercises. The purpose is clear.
According to Ji Linlian yesterday, after the modernization of the military on the other side, the scope of exercises has expanded from near-shore defense to offshore and even far seas. The full-scale exercise on the other side, the scale of exercises and the number of aircraft going to sea are more than the number currently disclosed by the government. He believes that ” This is not a nuisance to Taiwan, but the government has made people panic.” Ji Linlian further pointed out that China is conducting full-scale exercises, not only in the Taiwan Strait, and therefore criticized the Cai government for “selective reporting to mislead the people.”
The DPP now criticizes that even the international community generally believes that the CCP has become a troublemaker that undermines regional stability. Ji Linlian, a former general of the national army, not only did not condemn the CCP’s unreasonable actions, but also helped the other party to speak, which was completely misplaced and nothing wrong.
What is embarrassing is that the Central Committee of the Kuomintang has issued multiple statements on the issue of mutual planes disrupting the Taiwan platform, calling on “the Chinese Communist Party should self-control military actions related to harassing Taiwan” and “frequently breaking conventions to enter the identification zone, which will only increase the resentment of the Taiwanese people and cross-strait. Tension and confrontation, and increase the risk of military misjudgment, the Chinese Communist Party should immediately stop its actions and give up the use of force to commit a crime against Taiwan.”
Now Ji Linlian says that “it’s not a nuisance to Taiwan.” Zhu Lilun responded that what he saw, Ji Linlian emphasized that there is another important point, not just looking at the problem of disturbing the station, Ji Linlian also mentioned one thing specifically, regarding the overall safety and impact of the training in the end. What it is, we must clarify the purpose and the focus of the training, instead of just telling everyone how many sorties have passed through the aviation identification zone, but the real training, the content and purpose of the training are clearly stated.
