Info as of: 2023-04-10 16:46:00 – China recently ended its military exercises to encircle the island of Taiwan. However, the country continues to view the island's independence as incompatible with peace and has mobilized aircraft and warships to form a multi-directional blockade situation around the island. The European Union has expressed concern about these military exercises, considering them a source of instability in the region. If an escalation or use of force were to take place, it could have significant economic and security consequences for the region and the entire world. Russia provided support to Beijing, while the United States sent an implicit warning to China by crossing a sector of the South China Sea. Emmanuel Macron, for his part, refuses to engage in block-to-block logic and calls on the European Union not to follow the United States and China
