The US has warned China against any attack on Taiwan. US National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien issued the warning at a ceremony at the University of Nevada on Wednesday. At the time, he advised Beijing to take into account Washington’s possible reaction if it tried to repel Taiwan. Qatar-based Al Jazeera told the news in a report.
Reportedly, US law calls for the protection of Taiwan. However, it did not state the circumstances under which the country would be able to intervene militarily.
Robert O’Brien issued a warning to China at a time when Beijing was urging the US to end its tendency to accuse China without provocation. The call came in a statement from the Chinese Embassy in Japan on Wednesday (7 October).
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also visited Japan on Tuesday (October 5). At the time, he called for intensive cooperation between Australia, India and Japan to curb China’s growing regional influence. The Chinese Embassy in Japan reacted angrily. Meanwhile, the US has warned China against Taiwan.
A statement from the Chinese Embassy in Japan stated, “Pompeo has repeatedly lied against China and created a political confrontation in a hostile manner. We call on the United States to abandon the Cold War mentality and ideological bias, avoid accusations and attacks against China without provocation, and maintain constructive relations with China. ”
