Meanwhile, Taiwan will also put its military on alert. However, he said he did not want war.
Cyber attack: Earlier, hackers briefly disabled Taiwan’s Ministry of Defense website. The Taiwanese government has confirmed the attack while internet service has been restored.
In this regard, the Taiwan government is conducting consultations regarding increasing cyber security. At the beginning of this week, various government websites and the website of the President’s House were also attacked. It is reported that this should have been done by Chinese and Russian hackers.
Principals who warned each other: Chinese President Xi Jinping and US President Joe Biden spoke at length on the phone last week. Joe Biden has said that there is no change in the US policy on Taiwan and that China should not engage in efforts to change the peace and stability of Taiwan. In response to this, the Chinese president said, “Don’t play with fire. Those who play with fire will be destroyed by it. “China strongly opposes Taiwan’s independence and foreign interference,” he said.
Controversy over US intervention: In this context, US Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited Taiwan despite strong opposition from China. Since then, there has been war tension between China and America. US and Chinese warships have blockaded Taiwan and the South China Sea is at risk of war.
In this case, the visit of Nancy Pelosi was confirmed and the country said that the cyber war has started on Taiwan.
