U.S. Expands Training of Taiwan’s Military with Multiple States National Guards

According to a Japanese media report on January 20, the United States will expand diversified military training for Taiwan’s military using the U.S. National Guard from multiple states, to deter the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) as soon as possible. The report said that the U.S. National Guard mainly provides training to the world’s military through the State Partnership Program, which currently has more than 80 countries participating. The training content varies depending on the country being supported, including the operation of infantry tactics, operation of aircraft, cyber defense, disaster response, terrorism countermeasures, and medical support. Next, the U.S. will increase the scope of training for Taiwan’s military. Regarding this, a Pentagon spokesperson said that the U.S. support and defense relationship with Taiwan remains aligned against the current threat posed by the CCP and that the Biden administration intends to expand training as it believes the CCP is increasing its threat to Taiwan. In addition, the spokesperson said, “Our commitment to Taiwan is rock-solid and contributes to the maintenance of peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait and within the region.” Informed sources in Taiwan also revealed recently that military and paramilitary cooperation between Taiwan and the United States has been “ongoing” since a Memorandum of Coast Guard Cooperation between Taiwan and the U.S. in 2021. Taiwan adjusts its enlistment period and refines its force structure, including training, tactics and combat techniques. Closer interaction with the U.S. National Guard is expected, but the exact project would not be announced to the public.
