Reuters: Taiwan says has begun mass production of long-range missile
TAIPEI (Reuters) – Taiwan has begun mass production of a long-range missile and is developing three other models, a senior official said on Thursday, in a rare admission of efforts to develop strike capacity amid growing Chinese pressure.
China, which claims democratic Taiwan as its own territory, has stepped up military activity near the island, as it tries to force the government in Taipei to accept Beijing's claims of sovereignty.
Taiwan's armed forces, dwarfed by China's, are in the midst of a modernization programme to offer a more effective deterrent, including the ability to hit back at bases deep within China in the event of a conflict.
