Taiwan asks Australia for help with security and intelligence

A senior member of the Taiwan government has appealed to Australia for help as the small, independent territory fears an imminent invasion by China.

Foreign Minister Joseph Wu said countries such as Australia should develop closer ties with Taiwan as it faced a growing threat from its giant neighbour, which has always considered Taiwan part of its territory and not an independent nation.

Taiwan had complained of China sending huge numbers of military aircraft into its airspace over the past year, ramping up to nearly 100 incursions over a recent three-day period.
