German FM vows to support Taiwan if China attacks

German FM vows to support Taiwan if China attacks

German Foreign Minister Annalena Burbock pledged support for Taiwan in the event of a Chinese attack.

“We do not accept when international law is violated and a big neighbor attacks its smaller neighbor in violation of international law – this also applies to China, of course,” said Burbock, who is visiting New York.


The publication does not report on specific forms and measures of support.


The situation around Taiwan has been tense in recent days due to the possible visit of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The PRC considers the island its province and opposes any contact between Taipei representatives and current officials, especially high-ranking officials, or the military from countries with which Beijing has diplomatic relations.
