At the same time, Taipei refutes Chinese media reports that a Chinese Su-35 was in Taiwanese airspace.

REFERENCE. The Republic of China (Taiwan) is a state recognized by 17 countries, Ukraine de jure considers it a part of the PRC. Before being defeated by the communist regime of Mao Zedong in the civil war, it controlled the entire territory of China. Since 1949, it has controlled only Taiwan and a few small islands. The PRC considers Taiwan its province and declares its desire for “peaceful reunification.” Taiwan says it is ready to offer armed resistance if invaded.

President of the U.S.A Joe Biden declared in May that Washington engages the armyif China tries to take over Taiwan by force. “We support the One China policy, but that doesn’t mean that China has, excuse me, jurisdiction to use force to seize Taiwan,” he explained Washington’s position.
