An interview with Taiwan’s international minister revealed in an Israeli newspaper has reportedly ruffled feathers in China.
Jerusalem Post editor Yaakov Katz mentioned he obtained a name from the Chinese embassy in Israel, insisting that his outlet take down the interview.
“Didn’t take long. Got call from Chinese embassy. Apparently I’m supposed to take down the story or they will sever ties with the @Jerusalem_Post and downgrade relations with the State of Israel,” Katz tweeted shortly after the article was revealed. “Needless to say, story ain’t going anywhere.”
In the interview, Taiwan’s Foreign Minister Joseph Wu warned of the risk posed by China’s authoritarian regime.
“When dealing with China, you should never accept preconditions because once you accept preconditions, you lose no matter what,” Wu mentioned. “And when you worry about China getting angry and give in, or make pledges that you shouldn’t make concessions, China also wins.”
He urged Israel not to fear about getting China upset, noting that “when they get upset at you, that means you are doing something right.”
Taiwan stays a thorn within the aspect of Beijing, which regards the island nation as a renegade state. Fears of a doable invasion have mounted in latest months amid Russia’s brutal army invasion of Ukraine.
On Monday, Taiwan reported the largest incursion since January by China’s air power in its air protection zone, with the island’s protection ministry saying Taiwanese fighters scrambled to warn away 30 plane within the newest uptick in tensions.
