Biden remarks on US–China ‘Taiwan Agreement’; Chinese whistleblower confesses to Uyghur torture​



In China’s Shanxi Province, authorities warn of more landslides to come as the region faces continued heavy rains. Another deadly infectious disease has appeared in China. The bacteria was transmitted from birds to humans. For the first time, a Chinese police officer is speaking out about the torture of Uyghur detainees—something he says he was routinely ordered to perform. Beijing might be ready for a “full-scale” invasion of Taiwan by 2025, based on a warning from the Taiwanese defense minister. But how are Taiwanese people responding? And what does President Joe Biden have to say? Japan is taking action to deter Beijing. The country has stayed strictly on the defensive after World War II. But it may soon update that strategy to cope with Beijing’s aggression.

Is Being the World’s Dominant Chip Supplier a Blessing or Curse to Taiwan? | Zooming In China​



In January 2019, Xi Jinping delivered his most important Taiwan policy speech in the six years since he came to power. Xi declared that unification with Taiwan is one of the most important parts of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. In fact, Taiwan must unite with China, and China would not kick the can down the road forever. Did he imply that if a peaceful unification is not achievable, China will take over Taiwan during his lifetime and under his leadership? Now, the whole world is depending on Taiwan for chips. How has this impacted America’s determination to protect Taiwan? I had these discussions with Rupert Hammond-Chambers, President of the US-Taiwan Business Council. Take a listen.
