Taiwanese Foreign Minister Joseph Wu (Jaushieh Joseph Wu) gave an interview to the Australian press, where he spoke about the relationship with Beijing. Recall that the Chinese authorities consider Taiwan an integral part of the PRC, with which they strongly disagree in Taipei. Some time ago, Chinese President Xi Jinping made a rather harsh statement, noting that, if necessary, China intends to restore its territorial integrity, including by military methods.

The head of Taiwanese diplomacy in an interview with Australian journalists said that relations with Beijing are "at a very low point." According to Joseph Wu, the PRC is increasing pressure on the Republic of China (Taiwan's self-name), using disinformation and hybrid warfare for this.

From the interview:

Pressure from Beijing is mounting. It is necessary to prepare for a final strike on Taiwan from the PRC.

At the same time, the chief Taiwanese diplomat noted that he does not directly mean the "hot phase of hostilities."

Joseph Wu:

But in any case, we need to prepare for a war with the mainland. The entire Taiwanese government is preparing for a military invasion by the PRC.

It is noted that China is increasing its influence on Taiwan's allies in the Asia-Pacific region. An example is the Solomon Islands, the state of Kiribati, and other territories of Oceania.

Joseph Wu said Taipei is calling on Australia to help Taiwan.

It should be recalled the following: earlier, the Australian media, referring to the military command, wrote that the Australian Navy is ready to send its ships to the Taiwan Strait "together with its American allies if there is a direct threat to Taiwan from the Chinese troops." At the time, Beijing said that Australia was "trying to do something other than its own business."

    Approximately 15 UN member states recognize Taiwan as a state, the rest don't give a fuck! In their style, the Americans hold Taiwan as a bargaining chip in their confrontation with China. Uncle Vova needs to tell Xi, take the island with whatever methods you want - we will justify all Chinese actions, including in the UN Security Council, but for this, China officially recognizes that "Crimea is ours!", And then China and others will catch up - won't go anywhere! But how they will howl in Washington, London and Tokyo ... and how the garish lads will begin to squeal, it will be dear to see! laughing

      Do we really need the official Chinese recognition of Crimea? Many Russian companies still do not officially consider Crimea to be Russian (the same banks or cellular operators). It is with them that we need to conduct a “concrete conversation”, not with Xi ... I think China is not very interested in what “Vova will say to Comrade Xi” about Taiwan.

            They have their own laws. And their own rules. It is not for us to rewrite them. Not. Of course you can score and send. We will only lose suppliers and that's it. And the end of the business. Who needs it? Who benefits from this? Let's imagine that Sberbank comes to Crimea. All of its representative offices are beginning to close in Eastern Europe. He is suffering wild losses. Loses clients. Loses positions on exchanges. Tell me is it worth it?

        Well, why, if China returns Taiwan, then Western pressure will be simply colossal, and even now, if you read the Japanese, Australian, Taiwanese media, everyone is preparing for a possible war ... and the allies of the PRC will not interfere with this, you can send a group of the Russian Navy to teachings with China, near Taiwan, and thus indicate our position ... i.e. to increase pressure on Japan and Australia in their decision-making (to protect Taiwan), especially since Australia always supports the Russophobic course and anti-Russian sanctions, and Japan is staring at the Kuril Islands ... and already begin to form an anti-Western coalition of countries, since alone the effect of confronting the West minimal, but if it is collective pressure (China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela, Syria + SCO, EAEU and numerous trade partners of the PRC in Africa, the Middle East, Asia, etc.), then it will already be other story. So allies are what we, what China definitely need, but the US pressure of course (on other countries) will be very great.

            That's all right. And no one will intercede. Is it worth it? China just needs to learn how to make color revolutions. The tops are bought and sold, there are few stubborn dissenting ones. The majority counts losses and profits. Why take it immediately and announce it to the whole world? Let it be "Taiwan". "Independent", but with a pro-Chinese government.

      This anti-Chinese hysteria is sold in the same vein as Russophobia. The current hegemon pays for it, but as soon as he is blown away, everything will change dramatically. Taiwan is the world center for microelectronics, which China plans to get no matter what.

      And after all, they will come in, take them away, and give them a temporary status like that of Hong Kong. And all this without major hostilities ... But, most likely, they will start with a coup d'etat on the rebellious island.

    Taiwan needs to have real, not false, partners in the region, to be friends with countries against China. Such states as India and Vietnam are well suited for this, and the Yankees and the Naglo-Saxons are generally ready to throw gasoline into the fire, and cut down the dough on the supply of weapons.

      Taiwan is ideologically alien to Vietnam. Paradoxically, despite the territorial problems and the 1979 war, in general, SRV has a respectful attitude towards the PRC and the CPC. And the experience of Chinese reforms in Vietnam was taken seriously. Vietnam unambiguously recognizes Taiwan as the territory of the RAG. In turn, the PRC has a respectful attitude towards the memory of Ho Chi Minh.

      Taiwan needs real partners in the region, not false ones

      Until 1971, the Republic of China (Taiwan) was recognized as one of the victor countries in World War II, and when the UN was created in 1945, it was given the seat of a permanent member of the Security Council (i.e., a country with a veto). How did it happen? Namely, the government and army of the Republic of China, led by Chiang Kai-shek, carried the entire burden of the 1937-1945 war. with Japan, which has occupied part of Chinese territory since 1931. Despite the fact that Chinese Communist Party (CCP) troops during this war conserved forces from their secret bases, far from the front line... From 1937 to 1948, the main base of the Chinese Communist Party was deep Yan'an in Shaanxi Province.
      Since 1949, the Republic of China has been located exclusively in Taiwan and adjacent islands, retreating from the communist-occupied mainland China, where the latter proclaimed the People's Republic of China - the PRC.
      But then the United States decided to recognize the PRC and normalize relations. In Taipei, it was called "the greatest betrayal," the policy of the two Chinas is not acceptable. Since 1971, the Republic of China in Taiwan has not been a member of the United Nations - the UN, Taipei voluntarily left it. Then the UN voted to exclude the Republic of China on Taiwan from the UN, 75 UN member states voted in favor, abstained: 17, Against: 35.
      In 1979, the United States passed the Taiwan Relations Act (a law that guaranteed Taiwan's military protection in the event of Beijing aggression, as well as the supply of arms to the Republic of China, despite the fact that the United States established diplomatic relations with the PRC and recognized the principle of "one China" ...
      Because Russia has diplomatic relations with the PRC, then it cannot have diplomatic relations with the Republic of China in Taiwan (this is Beijing's requirement to all its partners). However, in Moscow there is an unofficial embassy of the Republic of China in Taiwan, recognized by the Russian authorities, but (nevertheless). Representation of the Taipei-Moscow Coordination Commission (similarly in Taiwan, Russia is represented by the Moscow-Taipei Coordination Commission for Economic and Cultural Cooperation in Taipei).

In the event of an invasion, China will receive a new, real wave of sanctions, a mass withdrawal of production and an outflow of capital from China. All this will collapse their economy instantly, because it is very tightly tied to trade with the West, first of all, with the USA!

            Taiwan population? Who are they interesting ..Chulie is solid and speculators
            And the common people, they asked? I also doubt very much that there are all millionaires with "democratic principles." negative
            This Taiwan is essentially a tick swollen on the body of China .. There, after all, they live by speculative operations and money laundering by criminal ones .. And China understands this very well.
            Well, your Sergei USA and others .. They don’t want to give up this "pump". The benefits are enormous ..
            China has long needed to smash this criminal financial English.
            They do not produce ANYTHING there, they live by speculation.

              Lord, what kind of nonsense are you talking about? Did you go out somewhere from your entrance? I have been to both China and Taiwan. The standard of living in Taiwan in 2013 seemed to me higher than in China in 2019.

    I remember how the "democrats" who supported the striped regime fled from southern Vietnam. Who was able to escape, whom the striped ones agreed to take in the evacuation (it's ridiculous to talk about the humanity of the striped ones - money was decided who would leave their country, and who should wait for the arrival of the Viet Cong). By the way, the civil war ended precisely with the departure of the striped ones - the striped ones left and it turned out that it was not necessary to cut each other out, especially if they were citizens of the same country.
    The United States was the guarantor of the independence of Czechoslovakia (at the time of Woodrow Nielsen) and quietly merged it in 39.

      Much more curious, in exchange for which the United States will agree to "merge" Taiwan. This clearly has to be some kind of radical trade deal, but it will be concluded "in favor" or "against" - the question.

    By the way, you all rejoice in vain and urge. A conflict in Taiwan of this magnitude could lead to monstrous market crashes that will affect everyone.

    Which one? To fight together or moral enough with the illumination of your ship in this district? Imagine, Australia got involved in a war with China over Taiwan - complete nonsense.

    Taiwan was fine until a certain time. There was a certain status quo.
    All players were happy with everything and no one especially went beyond the red lines. Time largely played on the side of China. At least building up the capabilities of the Chinese Navy. The South China Sea is increasingly becoming a large China puddle.

    But there was a change ...
    China used to have a democratic Hong Kong. If anything, then the West easily arranged problems for China there.
    And then there (on the problem) China was hurt and kicked hard.
    And when they just wanted and kicks were in one gate.
    China put things in order in Hong Kong.

    His place was taken by Taiwan.
    Cooperation on the West's WTS with Taiwan has increased, there are attempts at official contacts from US representatives to the UN, etc.

    Those. China was provoked on the Taiwan problem.
    Only here the stakes are higher and the game is no longer one-sided. In cases of some kind of traffic at sea or in the air, for example, if China turns the plane with UN-US officials or stops a ship with weapons for inspection, and the United States will be unable to do anything. That for the states will also be a kick in the form of loss of face and reputation.

    The invasion of Taiwan is absolutely unnecessary for China.
    If they will greet and build a completely sovereign state out of themselves.
    It will begin rather with the establishment of Chinese control over the communication with Taiwan by air and sea.
    And no one can do anything.

    Military action, if it will be local if Taiwan tries to challenge the Chinese control by military means. In this case, there will be downed planes, sunken ships, there may be single strikes on land as a response to air defense or anti-aircraft missile batteries.

    But this is not an invasion.
    A regulator that sets the escalation level in the hands of Taiwan.
    As they want, they will escalate.

    Most likely, the government in Taiwan solves internal problems and needs an external threat. But real military actions are not needed because this is a crisis, the government will be changed.

    Therefore, it is expected that they will escalate so that there would be loud screams of the world community but without a war, although a small war is always possible, a provocateur can always be found, but again this is not an invasion, China is already deciding on this issue, and they will be able to reason with Taiwan in other ways.

    What nonsense. The invasion of your territory is not even funny. There is no need to invade the PRC. They will announce the closure of the sky over Taiwan, introduce a naval blockade and that's it. The island is the same. How long will the pro-American government last? There are no fools to get involved in the internal affairs of China. Well, the US satellites bark and what. China doesn't give a damn about that.

    Proud Taiwanese who know how to make chips better than Japanese and American ones, it is not clear that China is going to become a superpower, and the latest generation chip technologies + power, are priority and strategically important for China ...
    Therefore, the script is ready ...
    - The PRC Navy liberates rebellious Taiwan from foreign imperialists, and establishes full sovereignty ...
    - The Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, in parallel on the eastern borders, provides a peacekeeping operation, and the status quo with the LPNR + Eastern and southern regions within the borders of the Ukrainian SSR ...
    Movements go simultaneously and in parallel, in the South-East of Europe, and in the South-East of Asia.
    The Pentagon and NATa in a racking chair tear panties and bite their fingers ...
    Three AUG (in the World Ocean) are not enough to intimidate the NAOK, well, no matter how ... to the edge, they will sink one AUG to the backwoods - "by mistake" ... they will apologize, compensate in dollars ... the Chinese candy wrappers of the United States have a lot ...
    And the ground Armed Forces of the Russian Federation are too tough for NATa ...
    Neither the bourgeois Russian Federation, nor the People's China, if they TOGETHER - the West cannot eat ...

    Preparation is possible either in the form of negotiations on the terms of surrender or on the ways in which they will flee. Because all their independence rests on the United States.
    Taiwan itself will under no circumstances be able to repel such an attack. What is available in Taiwan is enough to last a maximum of a couple of weeks. And changing the landscape of the island from tropical to lunar.
    Whether the United States will fight for them will be clear from how many troops they will deploy both to Taiwan itself and to nearby bases. If they bring everything that can swim and fly, then they will fight for Taiwan. If, as in the case of Kim Jong-un, one aircraft carrier and the next sanctions, then the Taiwanese are better off not resisting. It will be clear to both the Taiwanese and the PRC. When pulling together a large number of troops, China will not climb.
    On a global scale, regaining control of Taiwan is a change of world leader. Because it makes no sense to be under the "protectorate" of a country that will not come to your aid. Of course, the US will declare economic sanctions. But considering how much and what is produced in China and Taiwan, the effect will be negative for the United States. They will begin to flee to China.
    This will happen against the backdrop of the global financial crisis.
