Former PM Abe issues warning to China at Taiwan-hosted forum

TBS and Fuji TV reported at noon that former Prime Minister Abe said in a video message for an Indo-Pacific security symposium hosted by a Taiwan think tank that China should refrain from territorial expansion and provocative actions. He reportedly added that China would undermine its own interests if it chose not to do so. During a symposium attended by lawmakers of Japan, the United States, and Taiwan, Abe also warned China by saying: “If a huge economy such as China were to attempt a military adventure, it could be suicidal.” He also reportedly stressed that Japan and the United States should make efforts to have Taiwan participate in the WHO and other international organizations. Fuji TV said Taiwan President Tsai also attended the forum and thanked Abe for “expressing support for Taiwan’s security and democracy.”
