Amid massive geopolitical tensions in the Indo-Pacific region, the Communist Party of China called on Japan a ‘nuclear response’ and ‘war’ for interfering in ‘Taiwan’s interests in Beijing’. ‘ Threatened. A video message broadcast by Chinese state media referred to Japan as an exception to China’s long-standing policy of “no use of nuclear weapons against non-nuclear countries”.
The video purportedly claimed, “We will use nuclear bombs first and will continue to use them.” We will do so until Japan declares its surrender unconditionally for the second time. After the video got two million views, it was removed from the Chinese social media platform Xigua. However, according to Taiwan News, users uploaded its copy on YouTube and Twitter.
Japan should protect Taiwan
The Japan Times said China’s threat came after comments by Japanese officials about Taiwan’s sovereignty two weeks ago, in which Deputy Prime Minister Taro Aso said Japan should “protect Taiwan”. Beijing claims full sovereignty over Taiwan while the two countries have been ruling separately for seven decades. Taiwan, located on the southeast coast of mainland China, operates as a democratic country with a population of about 24 million.
Taipei has consistently countered Chinese aggression by strengthening strategic ties with major democracies such as the United States and India. At the same time, China has warned that ‘Taiwan’s independence means war.’ Beijing has stepped up its grey-zone strategies by regularly flying fighter jets over the territory of Taiwan since mid-September 2020.
