If China’s two-decade-long arms buildup continues at current rates, the mainland will be able “to take Taiwan by force before the end of 2020″ despite any moves by Taiwanese allies such as the US to repel an invasion, Taiwan’s military said Tuesday.
If China’s 20-year-long military buildup continues at current rates, the mainland will be capable of invading Taiwan by 2020 despite any moves by Taiwanese allies to repel an incursion, a Taiwanese military report said Tuesday.
“With the continued arms buildup, the Chinese communists will be able to take Taiwan by force before the end of 2020,” the report said.
China’s annual military spending has grown by double-digit rates on average for the past 20 years or so, according to the 2013 National Defence Report. The study added that China’s capacity for weapons research and manufacturing had also greatly increased and had come to pose “a grave threat to Taiwan”.
