New Delhi: Tension between China and Taiwan is increasing continuously. Meanwhile, China has announced that it will continue its maneuvers and military exercise without an end date. In effect this means China will continue its maneuvers around Taiwan indefinitely. Earlier, China had said that its military exercise would be held only from 4 to 8 August.
After this announcement by China, international affairs experts say that China is preparing to encircle Taiwan firmly by increasing the number of its warships, fighter jets and drones. In such a situation, the fear is also getting strengthened that by encircling Taiwan from all sides, China may not take any big step like war.

According to reports, Taiwan has also started maneuvers to deal with any Chinese attack and to protect itself.
