Taiwan says its supersonic missiles can strike Beijing
(Worthy News) – Taiwanese Legislative Speaker You Si-kun warned China on Sunday that Taiwan possesses supersonic missiles capable of reaching the Chinese capital city of Beijing.
In a speech on Taiwan Overseas Network, which was translated by Taiwan News, You warned China against invading Taiwan and offered the “strategic clarity” of letting China know that a war would also be costly for the mainland.
You, who previously served as the Premiere of Taiwan’s executive branch (a role separate from that of the Taiwanese President) from 2002 to 2005, said that when he was premiere he was made aware of Taiwan’s Yun Feng supersonic cruise missile and its ability to reach Beijing. The Taiwanese lawmaker said he was not permitted to discuss the technical capabilities of the Yun Feng missile at the time, but could now reveal that the missile has since been mass-produced.
