Top U.S. general dismisses possibility of imminent Chinese invasion of Taiwan

NHK focused on a speech given in Washington on Wednesday by JCS Chairman Milley, during which he said he does not expect China to take military action against Taiwan in the next few years. However, he underscored the importance for the U.S. military to prepare for a Chinese invasion of the island territory because the PLA is building the capacity to offer such an option to its political leadership. While pointing out that the President will decide whether to commit U.S. troops for the defense of Taiwan, Gen. Milley said the U.S. military “absolutely has the capability” to do so if required.
