Taiwan will extend its compulsory military service to one year from four months, President Tsai Ing-wen said. She spoke after the National Security Council discussed ways to reinforce the island’s civil defense to prepare for the increasing threat from China.
“The current four-month military service is not enough to meet the fast and ever-changing situation,” she noted. The change would come into effect in January 2024.
