China seeks non-military union with Taiwan, says US intelligence chief

Following reports about the Russian soldiers who are encountering stiff opposition in Ukraine, the chief of the United States’ intelligence community has given a hint that China is now growing more apprehensive about taking a military action against Taiwan.

Avril Haines, who is the Director of National Intelligence, said on Tuesday before the Senate Armed Services Committee that the government of China is making significant efforts in order to equip their military with the capability of capturing Taiwan in spite of the participation of the United States.

She went on to say that the goal of China is to unite with Taiwan by peaceful means rather than by the use of force, which is why the Chinese government is increasing its diplomatic, economic, and military pressure.

Haines also said that China has been doing research over Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
