NUCLEAR WARNING Issued as Tension between the US & China Becomes Heated
ETN - Nuclear conflict between China and the US would lead to "destruction" of both countries, says former Ambassador to Beijing.
Rui Xiaojian, former US ambassador, talked about the dangers of a China-Us nuclear war. He served as Us Ambassador to Singapore, Indonesia and China. From 1992 - 1995 he served as the US ambassador to Beijing. He highlighted a conflict would be, "as unimaginable as the conflict between the US and the Soviet Union that year"
He said the lessons of the Cold war have long been forgotten and its to bad because there was much to learn from it since the US was able to seer away from a nuclear confrontation during the Cold War. He said he expects the US and China to have a military conflict over the disputes involving Taiwan.
China has laid claim to sovereignty over Taiwan. Taiwan is a democracy making up of about 24 million people. Even though the two nations have governed themselves separately for over 70 years Beijing has laid claim to its ownership calling it "One China" and demands their is only one sovereign state of China.
Last month China threated to take Taiwan by force if necessary saying "“independence means war”.
The Threat came after Taiwan reported a large presence of Chinese warplanes two days in a row. China claimed it was because of foreign interference.
Chinese Defence Ministry spokesman Wu Qian said :"The military activities carried out by the Chinese People's Liberation Army in the Taiwan Strait are necessary actions to address the current security situation in the Taiwan Strait and to safeguard national sovereignty and security.”
On Thursday a US warship sailed through the Taiwan Strait. This move by the Us military has angered the Chinese in the past. China claims the Us moves are a breach of its sovereignty. The Us and other nations view it as international waters.
The American Seventh Fleet said its passage of the USS John S. McCain on Thursday “demonstrates the US commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific”.
Time will tell as tensions continue to rise.
