Taipei, July 28 (CNA) President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) praised the military’s efforts to safeguard the country’s national security on Friday, days after China sent military aircraft close to Taiwan on what the Chinese described as training missions.
During an appearance at an Air Force base in Tainan, Tsai said the purpose of the visit was to support the 443rd Tactical Fighter Wing, which is stationed at the base, and witness the Air Force’s resolve to protect the country.
