Taiwan President fears a ‘potential threat’ of invasion by China

Taiwan President fears a ‘potential threat’ of invasion by China, amid repeated indications by Beijing in that direction, RT news agency reported.

RT news agency also cited an article written by Barack Obama’s speechwriter and Deputy National Security Advisor, Ben Rhodes. In the article, Tsai said that they need to be ready for a potential Chinese invasion.

Although, the Chinese military is of much larger magnitude than that of Taiwan, but Tsai has also tried to boost the defence spending. Under her tenure, the defence spending has increased by 13 per cent and is further expected to reach $19 billion in 2023, RT news agency reported.

“If the [People’s Liberation Army] wants to do something drastic, [Chinese President] Xi has to weigh the costs. He has to think twice” RT news quoted Tsai as saying to the former White House official.

“The Western countries, particularly the US, are helping Ukraine. What we see from the Ukraine war is Western countries get together and help Ukraine to fight,” RT news quoted the Taiwanese president as saying in the article.

RT news agency reported that shortly after Tsai’s conversation with Rhodes, China opened its biennial air show, demonstrating anti-drone weapons, fifth-generation fighter jets, and reportedly hypersonic anti-ship missiles.

RT news agency further cited analysts in calling this flexing of military muscle as a warning to the West not to interfere with the reunification with Taiwan.

During the regular media briefing, China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said, “China firmly rejects any official interaction with Taiwan by any country having diplomatic ties with China.”

The strong position has put it at odds with the United States and its Western allies, who maintain strategic ambiguity, but escalated tensions in August following the visit of US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan.

The 69-year-old secured a historic third term as China’s President last month while stacking the all-powerful Politburo Standing Committee with loyalists, cementing his role as the most powerful leader since Communist Party founder Mao Zedong.

Chinese President’s statement indicates that the unification of Taiwan with China is the key agenda for him.
