The example of Hong Kong, already annexed by China, shows the inexpediency of waiting for something regarding Taiwan
The geopolitical and military-political situation around China and Taiwan continues to escalate. The example of Hong Kong, already annexed by China, shows the inexpediency of waiting for something regarding Taiwan. Right now the international community should clearly demonstrate its commitment to Taipei. If we do not react adequately to Beijing’s actions, it will have tangible consequences for the entire region.
From the military point of view, Beijing and Taipei are currently playing a specific game of “cat and mouse”, and Chinese jet fighters have recently become more common in Taiwan’s airspace. In the South China Sea, on the border with India and in Hong Kong, China is increasingly asserting its interests. The danger must be taken seriously, international experts write, warning that Taiwan could become a new Hong Kong.
In fact, another precedent is being set for the possibility or intention of restoring the country’s territorial integrity by force. At this, the aggravation of the situation in the Asia Pacific region distracts the world community from Ukraine, of which Russia can take advantage.
