A leaked audio clip purportedly featuring the Chinese Communist Party’s top brass discussing military plans for a Taiwan invasion has triggered a controversy online. According to Indian media, the 57-minute leaked clip is reportedly the first-ever recording of a Chinese military brass gathering.
U.S. Army General Douglas MacArthur called Taiwan the “unsinkable aircraft carrier.” He was referring to its value as a ‘strategic asset’ in communism-containment during the Cold War. Generations later, Taiwan faces arguably heightened risk of communist invasion: Will China, spurred on by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, make a similar move on Taiwan?
China’s CCP has warned that no foreign powers or militaries will succeed in interfering with Taiwan, cautioning that any country attempting to offer military support to Taipei will face “consequences.”
“The Taiwan question is a purely internal affair of China,” Defense Ministry spokesman Senior Colonel Tan Kefei told reporters on Friday.
“No one and no force can stop” Beijing from a “complete national reunification” with Taiwan, Tan said, adding that anyone who tries to do so, “will suffer the worst consequences in the end.”
Taiwan condemns the joint statement of Russia and China, in which the countries reaffirmed their commitment to the principle of “one China,” implying Beijing’s sovereignty over the island. The Taiwanese Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
“The US violated the promises made when China and the US established diplomatic relations, condoned and encouraged ‘Taiwan independence’ forces, and tried to distort and hollow out the one-China principle,” Wang Yi said.
Rumble — Troops and armored vehicles were deployed in Taiwan Thursday in a simulation of urban warfare against Chinese forces.
About 80% of Taiwan’s 23mn population live in urban areas, where Army Infantry School instructor Kiwi Yang expects Beijing to wage its battle plans in the event of an invasion.
Last year Taipei recorded 970 incursions into its airspace in 2021, up from 380 in 2020, while the People’s Liberation Army staged its own mock invasion urban battle drills last month according to state TV
