New Delhi, 10 October 2021

As per news report of BBC, "The more we achieve, the greater the pressure we face from China," Ms Tsai said. Her speech on Taiwan's National Day came after China's President Xi Jinping vowed to "fulfil reunification". Taiwan considers itself a sovereign state, while China views it as a breakaway province. Beijing has not ruled out the possible use of force to achieve unification. China has sent a record number of military jets into Taiwan's air defence zone in recent days. Some analysts said the flights could be seen as a warning to Taiwan's president.
