Taiwan Strait

The Taiwan Strait is a 180 km-wide strait separating the island of Taiwan and continental Asia. The strait is a part of the South China Sea. It connects to the East China Sea to the north. The entire strait is located on Asia’s continental shelf.
The strait is a disputed territory as China considers Taiwan to be integral part of its territory. It is currently exerting political and military pressure on the democratically ruled island to accept its sovereign authority. It has been conducting exercise around the island nation almost daily.
