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.
