US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s 19-hour visit to Taiwan is over, but China’s fury is not subsiding. Even before Pelosi’s visit, China is threatening war. According to reports, China has started war exercises near Taiwan. At the same time, it has been said in Chinese media reports that soon there may be a missile attack on Taiwan. If this happens, then China will repeat such an incident after 26 years. In 1995, after tensions between the two countries increased, China fired a missile that had come out over the capital Taipei and landed in a deserted area.
Chinese state media Global Times quoted military experts as saying that China has started war exercises and now missiles can also be fired at Taiwan. Lethal weapons are to be exercised in China’s war exercise. These include the J-20 stealth combat jet, the DF-17 hypersonic missile. This exercise is being done in response to Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan.

what happened 26 years ago
Even in 1995, China was furious about a visit. Then Taiwan’s President Lee Teng-hui was on his way to deliver a speech at a university in New York. At first, America refused to give visa to the President, but then, ignoring China under political pressure, America gave him visa. After this visit, tensions between China and America increased and Taiwan had to bear the brunt of this. Angered by the President’s speech, China started conducting missile tests near Taiwan. China deployed fighter planes. Several missiles fell near Taiwan during the test. At the same time, a missile came out while flying over the city of Taipei.
