    China condemns Britain for Taiwan Strait warship mission

    BEIJING — China strongly condemned Britain on Monday for sailing a warship through the sensitive Taiwan Strait, saying it was behavior that “harbored evil intentions” and that the Chinese military followed the vessel and warned it away.


    A post on the ship’s Twitter account said HMS Richmond passed through the strait en route to Vietnam. It had been deployed in the East China Sea while taking part in United Nations sanctions enforcement operations against North Korea.

    China claims Taiwan as its own territory and has stepped up military and political pressure to try and force the democratically ruled island to accept Chinese sovereignty.

    While U.S. warships pass through the strait on an almost monthly basis, despite Chinese opposition, U.S. allies have generally been reluctant to follow suit.


    The People’s Liberation Army’s Eastern Theatre Command said it has organized air and naval forces to follow the Richmond and warn it.


    “This kind of behavior harbors evil intentions and damages peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait,” it said. “Theater command forces always maintain a high level of alert and resolutely counter all threats and provocations.”


    Relations between Beijing and London are already strained over a long list of issues, from trade to human rights.


    In Taipei, Taiwan Defence Minister Chiu Kuo-cheng did not comment directly when asked about the British warship, saying he did not know what missions foreign ships in the Taiwan Strait were carrying out.


    “When they pass through the Taiwan Strait our nation’s military will have a grasp of the situation, but will not interfere,” he told reporters, adding they keep a close watch on all movements near Taiwan.


    China has been ramping up its exercises around Taiwan and flies air force aircraft almost daily into the southwestern part of Taiwan’s air defense zone.

    Not to go off topic, but I read in another thread, that in reality, this is all down to geology

    China's concept of "peace and stability in the area" appears to be somewhat different to everybody else's.

    'Strongly condemned.' Yes, from their 12 course dinner in a fashionable restaurant.

    This is 'jobsworth' culture. People in China who have to complain because it is more than their job's worth not to complain. So the Chinese media goes into a frenzy about a 30-year old warship that has probaby never fired a shot in anger.

    How much damage could a single frigate do to China? Apart from rubbing their noses in their own BS?

    Possibly our last engagement was HMS Amethyst, which sneaked away in the night time. Some historian amongst us might know more.

    And Boris: 'evil intentions'? Lord save us, we are straying into QAnon theory here.

    Loved this, absolutely spot on.
    The Chinese behavior in the South China Sea is far more provocative!

    The 'People's Daily' is a state-controlled mouthpiece for Mr. Shithole.

    It is standard dictatorial policy to try and stoke your people into a xenophobic frenzy by portraying anyone foreign as an enemy.

    The average chinky in the street probably wouldn't give a shit about a ship sailing from point a to point b out of sight, until this government fucking nonsense and other state lies tell them otherwise.

    FIFY.

    The published report:

    Chinese military opposes British warship's sailing through Taiwan Strait

    Source:China Military Online Editor:Li Jiayao 2021-09-27 1819


    "BEIJING, Sept. 27 -- The British Royal Navy frigate HMS Richmond sailed through the Taiwan Strait on September 27 and openly hyped it up. The Eastern Theater Command of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) sent naval and air forces to track and monitor the British warship in the whole course, said Senior Colonel Shi Yi, spokesperson for the PLA Eastern Theater Command, in a written statement released on Monday.

    Snr. Col. Shi pointed out that the British side has tried in vain to create a sense of presence by sending its military vessel to pass through the Taiwan Strait, and such ill-intentioned behavior undermines peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait and fully exposes its speculative mentality.

    Troops of the PLA Eastern Theater Command are staying on high alert at all times, and will resolutely counter all threats and provocations, Snr. Col. Shi stressed."
