President Tsai Ing-wen watched the Han Kuang exercise on Thursday in central Taichung along with the King of Swaziland. Swaziland, officially the Kingdom of eSwatini, is Taiwan’s only diplomatic ally in Africa.

Over 4,100 military personnel took part in Thursday’s exercise, and over 1,500 pieces of equipment were used. After the exercise, President Tsai said that she is confident of the army’s combat capability.

“In the last few days, I have witnessed the army’s combat capability in person. I am absolutely confident that the military is capable of defending the country and deterring the enemy. The members of our military have worked very hard to overcome many obstacles, and the quality of our troops has seen significant progress. Their goal, which lies at the core of their combat readiness, is defending our country,” said Tsai.

Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Chen Chung-chi also said that showcasing the might of Taiwan’s military will help consolidate ties between Taiwan and its allies.    [SOURCE]
