(Taiwan) Like the South China Sea, the Taiwan Straits is another flashpoint in the Indo-Pacific region

Rajaram Panda writes for VIF: Like the South China Sea, the Taiwan Straits is another flashpoint in the Indo-Pacific region. Both have the China factor where it is flexing its military muscle. While in the South China Sea, it is in conflict with some other Asian countries which make sovereignty claims in the parts of the sea that fall within their exclusive economic zones, China claims the South China Sea almost in its entirety. It has not only been engaged in island-building and militarisation activities, its naval vessels have been sailing on a continuing basis in other claimants’ fishing zones.
