According to the expert Vladimir Prokhvatilov, large-scale military maneuvers by the People’s Liberation Army of China (PLA) may be a rehearsal for the invasion of Taiwan. However, now the development of a direct armed conflict is unlikely, he said.
Prokhvatilov noted that Beijing, Washington and Taipei fear the start of a war that could escalate into a nuclear one. Moreover, the United States is aware that the Chinese air force and navy are much more powerful than the American one.
“Taiwan will not take military steps either – the forces are incomparable,” Prokhvatilov explained in a conversation with the Telegram channel Radiotochka NSN.
The expert is convinced that visit Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi to the island is a pre-planned campaign stunt by the Democratic Party.
“This is America’s adventurist policy, which is condemned by everyone,” the analyst concluded.
