As per a report by a U.S. government agency, the China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) has now or will soon have the ability to invade island-nation of Taiwan. The agency also came to a conclusion that, several failed attempts have been made by China and the United States to mend the situation.
A recently released annual report by the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission, the Chinese PLA is capable of landing at least 25,000 troops on the island nation to establish an initial beachhead. This committee was appointed by the American congress in order to come up with a specific and nonpartisan national security and economic advice.
Talking to the reporters, former Republican Senator Jim Talent of Missouri and a member of the commission said that they are giving all the signs this is an option they are considering to be viable.
According to the report, the Chinese PLA has trained with barges, ferries and other civilian vessels for transporting military troops across the Taiwan Straits.
