CHINA is supposedly set to deploy its two brand-new carrier off the coast of Taiwan as it alerts the United States of a “new cold war”.
The big carriers, the Liaoning and Shandong, are presently engaged in combat preparedness training in the securely managed Bohai Bay, in the Yellow Sea prior to sailing to join an invasion war game near Pratas island.
This will be the very first time China’s new attack aircraft carrier deploy together for the first time and the relocation has triggered worries in Taiwan of a possible invasion of its Pratas islands – which could then be utilized as a staging point for an attack on the mainland.

The United States stated on Friday it is set to prohibit trade with 33 Chinese business.
However China’s foreign minister Wang Yi said the other day this would run the risk of “a brand-new Cold War” as he declined Washington’s “lies” over its handling of coronavirus while saying Beijing was open to a worldwide effort to find its source.
Wang said the United States had actually been infected by a “political virus” engaging figures there to continuously assault China.
He said: “It has actually come to our attention that some political forces in the United States are taking China-US relations hostage and pressing our 2 countries to the verge of a new Cold War.”
