On Friday, China appointed former Navy chief Dong Jun as the new Defense Minister, replacing Li Shangfu, who mysteriously disappeared four months ago after being fired.

Although the reasons for Li Shangfu's disappearance were not specified, Dong's appointment comes at a time of increased military tensions, particularly concerning Taiwan, and aligns with China's ongoing efforts to enhance its military capabilities.

The appointment of Dong Jun as China's Defense Minister is a strategic move in line with President Xi Jinping's broader vision to position China as a leading global power.

In his role as the defence minister, Dong will serve as a pivotal figure, acting as the public face of the People's Liberation Army (PLA), engaging with the media, and collaborating with other armed forces.

This appointment underscores China's commitment to ongoing military advancements, reflecting a larger transformation in global geopolitical dynamics.

China-Taiwan tensions: Xi Jinping says nobody can stop 'family reunion' with Taiwan | Oneindia

Chinese President Xi Jinping conveyed to former Taiwan President Ma Ying-jeou on Wednesday that external interference would not impede the "family reunion" between the two sides of the Taiwan Strait. He emphasised that all issues are open for discussion. Since the Republic of China government retreated to Taiwan in 1949 following a civil war loss to Mao Zedong's communists, no sitting Taiwanese leader has visited China. However, Ma, who served as president from 2008 to 2016, broke this pattern last year, marking the first visit by a former Taiwanese leader to China. This visit, Ma's second, occurs amid heightened military tensions in the region. #China #Taiwan #XiJinping #MaYingjeou #Tensions #FamilyReunion #CrossStraitRelations #Diplomacy #Geopolitics #EastAsia ~HT.97~PR.152~ED.101~
