Qiu Chenyuan said that it is necessary to affirm Tian Shanjian's action of driving away and fully express his position of defending the country.
This year coincides with the presidential election. Is it normal for the Communist Army to enter the 24 nautical miles?
If the communist army wants to enter 12 nautical miles, does the national army have a contingency plan?
Bai Honghui emphasized that in the 24 nautical mile section, the National Army cooperated with the Coast Guard and never allowed it to enter the 24 nautical mile.
Bai Honghui pointed out that the emergency situation has been made very clear. If the CCP has military planes, warships, or large or small troops, the 24 nautical miles is the guard line of the adjacent area, and the 12 nautical miles are inviolable. The Ministry of National Defense will fully respond and deal with it. Never allow CCP planes, ships and drones to enter 24 or 12 nautical miles.
DPP legislator Liu Shifang also asked, the CCP warship confronted the navy while passing through the waters off Hengchun, which was exposed by the "Liberty Times" a few days ago, whether or not this happened?
Bai Honghui responded, "Of course there is." Liu asked, what did the communist warships say when they confronted the navy warships?
Bai Honghui pointed out that when the outside world sees the announcement, it is all transmitted from the radio, and the content is probably like that.
Liu Shifang pointed out, so the Communist Army has choked "Taiwan is part of China"?
Bai Honghui replied, "That's right! It doesn't matter if it's a plane or a ship, that's what it says."
Liu asked again, what did the navy reply, did they use "our side"?
Didn't talk about the navy of the Republic of China at all?
Bai Honghui said that the Navy responded strongly to it.
Every time it invades adjacent areas, it uses the Republic of China, including airspace.
Liu asked again, did the national army use "our side", "our army" or "the navy of the Republic of China" when responding?
Bai Honghui said that all the answer terms were the Republic of China Navy or Air Force.
Liu Shifang said that according to the statistics of Chinese warships entering my country's waters, since the US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited Taiwan last August, has there been any increase in the number of Chinese warships entering the contingency zone?
Bai Honghui replied that the number is increasing.
Liu criticized that former President Ma Ying-jeou was going to visit China and claimed that he was trying to reduce the tension in the Taiwan Strait, but the dynamics of the Communist Army did not achieve results, which is very bad.
