BEIJING, January 9 – RIA Novosti. Taiwan’s armed forces noted that 57 planes and four ships of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) of China were approaching the island yesterday, according to a daily report by Taiwan’s defense ministry.

“Between 6:00 am on January 8 and 6:00 am on January 9, 57 aircraft and four ships of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army were observed around Taiwan,” the island’s Ministry of Defense said in a statement.

The ministry said Taiwan has sent air and sea patrols and deployed land-based missile systems to monitor the situation.

The situation around Taiwan escalated significantly in early August last year following a visit to the island by Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the US House of Representatives at the time. Seeing the island as one of its own provinces, China saw the US support for Taiwanese separatism in this move, condemned Pelosi’s visit and held large-scale military exercises.

Official relations between the PRC central government and the island province were interrupted in 1949 after the Kuomintang forces led by Chiang Kai-shek, defeated in a civil war with the Chinese Communist Party, moved to Taiwan. Commercial and informal contacts between the island and mainland China resumed in the late 1980s. From the early 1990s, the parties began to establish contacts through non-governmental organizations – the Beijing Association for the Advancement of Relations across the Taiwan Strait and the Taipei Cross-Strait Exchange Foundation.
