Taiwan has warned China that it will respond in kind in the event of a fire after Chinese fighter jets intensified operations around the island, repeatedly flying through the middle of the strait that separates it from the mainland.

Beijing sees Taiwan as a renegade province and has promised to reunify it by force if necessary.

Tensions between the two grew rapidly, especially after David Hale, the US Under Secretary of State, paid an official visit to Taipei last week as Washington pushed $ 7 billion in arms sales , including cruise missiles, mines and drones on the island. After the Chinese jet incursions, Taiwan’s Defense Ministry said it had clearly defined procedures to deal with the “high frequency of harassment and threats from the enemy.”
