Taiwan will accelerate the development of drones for military use, given lessons learned from the war in Ukraine and the Chinese threat, the island’s defense ministry said.
Unmanned aerial vehicles play an important role for both sides in the Russian-Ukrainian conflict. Ukraine’s defense minister said he sees drones as the future of modern warfare.
Taiwan, which faces growing threats of the use of force from Beijing, has repeatedly said it is following the war in Ukraine closely and learning lessons it can apply to fend off an attack by the Mainland China.
In particular, he monitors how Ukraine resists numerically superior forces.
Taiwanese Defense Ministry spokesman Sun Lifang told reporters that the island is accelerating the development and production of drones.
