TAIPEI: China could raise the number of missiles aimed at Taiwan to 1,900 by the end of the year despite warming ties between the former bitter rivals, according to the island's deputy defence minister.

Military experts estimate that the PLA currently has more than 1,600 missiles aimed at the island. But recent media reports have said the People's Liberation Army may boost the number of short-range ballistic and cruise missiles facing Taiwan to 1,960 before the year's end.

"Judging from their manufacturing capacities, the PLA could increase to that number of missiles targeting Taiwan before the year's end," Andrew Yang, an academic-turned deputy defence minister, told foreign media.

Although tensions across the Taiwan Strait have eased since President Ma Ying-jeou's China-friendly administration came to power in 2008, "Beijing has never renounced the use of force against Taipei," Yang warned.

.

not necessary. india gets a different type of missile from those that are aimed -- at the 7th fleet -- not aimed at taiwan.. i mean  how many times do i have to tell you guys that china do not need those missiles if dealing with taiwan is needed? once again, to take care taiwan as is with any other east asian entity, all that's needed is for each and every mainlander to empty their bladders on the island and they would drown in it... india gets df-25's (10% MIRV) and only god knows the actual number (speculations have it 500)  while what's in the Fujian coast are df-21s...

Putin's a killer. This was the claim made by Fox News journalist; Bill O'Reilly during his recent interview with Donald Trump. Trump's reply came in the form of a simple question. What, you think our country's so innocent?
