‘Trump administration will not go to war’: Chinese military to deploy military assets in Taiwan
The U.S. military is set to deploy some 2,000 soldiers to the Taiwan Strait as part of a massive military buildup to counter China’s growing military presence in the region.
A senior administration official told Fox News that the U.s. military has already deployed 1,000 troops to the area.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the matter.
The announcement came hours after the U of T’s Chinese Students Association sent a letter to the university president demanding that the university rescind the president’s invitation to Chinese students to speak at a campus-wide forum.
“As Chinese students continue to visit our university, the decision to allow the visit by the Chinese Students’ Association to be held at the University of Toronto is contrary to the University’s commitment to academic freedom and the University is deeply concerned about the potential impact this event will have on our students,” the letter reads.
“We strongly believe that our students should not be forced to attend a event that is not hosted by the university, which is a highly sensitive issue for all students and our community.”
This is not the first time that the University has been targeted for intimidation by Chinese students and their supporters.
We have previously received threats of violence from the Chinese community.
We are extremely concerned that this may be the case again.
“The U of L Students Association, the student wing of the Communist Party of Canada, said it had received hundreds of threats against the university since the beginning of the year.
The U. of T said in a statement that it was concerned about security risks associated with the Chinese students visit and would work with university police to investigate and take appropriate action.
