The Republic of China Air Force will participate in a drill with a European country next
year, a local newspaper reported Tuesday, calling it a breakthrough in Taiwan’s military cooperation with Europe.
Asked to confirm the report, Ministry of National Defense spokesperson Major General Luo Shou-he said Taiwan would welcome any moves that help boost military exchanges with foreign countries and can bolster the country’s combat capabilities. “But we will not comment on any related details,” he said.
The report in Tuesday’s edition of the Chinese-language Liberty Times cited an unnamed military official as saying that the Air Force will send a team to “a European country” next year to participate as an observer in a national-level air force exercise in that country. [FULL STORY]
