The medium and long range ballistic missiles deployed by China may target other countries
but still threaten Taiwan, Major General Luo Shou-he, spokesperson for Taiwan’s Ministry of National Defense, said Tuesday.
“Although China’s medium- and long-range ballistic missiles are aimed at other countries, they still pose a threat to Taiwan. We hope Taiwan’s people understand this, even if China’s short-range missiles are the biggest threat to Taiwan,” Luo said after a ministry news briefing.
Luo was responding to an 8,000-word report published by the People’s Liberation Army Daily on Monday detailing the strategic missile forces under China’s Second Artillery Corps.
He described the report as an attempt to intimidate Taiwan’s people psychologically. “This was not conducive to cross-strait harmony and will even provoke resentment among Taiwan’s people,” he said. [FULL STORY]
