Tue June, 2021, Age: 3 years
According to data compiled by Nikkei, Chinese military flybys have decreased since the U.S. and Japan declared its cooperation to maintain stability in the Taiwan Strait. Japan has more assertively expressed its support for Taiwan on the global stage, including sending roughly one million doses of COVID-19 vaccine to the island. The United States has also reinforced its support for Taiwan diplomatically, lobbying its allies to stand with the island in solidarity.
