The defense minister of Taiwan said his nation alone will successfully repel any invasion by Mainland China. While talking to reporters on Monday, Taiwan’s top defense official said Beijing wants to “slowly exhaust” the island nation, but it will not succeed.

The defense minister then stressed Taiwan’s defense force has efficient counter-measures in place to contain and defeat China’s plans of annexation. His remarks came after 27 Chinese warplanes violated the Taiwanese Air Defense Zone on Sunday.

Separately, Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen said all freedom-loving nations must stand by Taiwan.

“Taiwan is willing to share its experiences in fighting disinformation with its European friends and fight along with them to protect commonly shared values to ensure our democratic and free style of living,” she stated.

Taiwanese officials recently moved to improve defense ties with the EU and Japan amid mounting doubt of the Biden administration’s ability to stand up to the Chinese Communist Party.
