Joseph Wu said China had “been conducting misinformation campaigns” against Taiwan and had increased their grey zone activities.
China is “preparing for its final military assault” on Taiwan, the island’s foreign minister has told Sky News, as he vowed to “defend ourselves to the very end”.
“And all these seem to be preparing for their final military assault against Taiwan,” he added.
“This is our country, this is our people and this is our way of life. We will defend ourselves to the very end.
“Taiwan happens to be on the frontline of China’s expansion of its authoritarian order. And if Taiwan is taken by China, I think the consequences will be global.”
