trying to save taiwan
According to sources, in view of the possibility of China’s attack on Taiwan, the US and Taiwan are lobbying to impose sanctions from the European Union in different ways, however, the talks that are going on right now are in the initial stage and this is the reason for the sanctions. The package is being seen as a response to fears of Chinese aggression, under which China has significantly increased military tension in the Taiwan Strait and it is believed that China will attack Taiwan at any cost in the near future. . According to the Aljazeera report, the imposition of sanctions, different from those already taken in the West, is being considered to restrict some trade and investment with China in sensitive technologies such as computer chips and telecommunications equipment.
Will the restrictions be practical?
Although sources have not given details about the sanctions being considered against China, but questions are being raised that against the country with the world’s second largest economy and the world’s largest supply chain. If sanctions are imposed, how practical will they be and will sanctions against China really be effective? Nazak Nikkhtar, a former senior US Commerce Department official, said that “imposing sanctions on China is likely a far more complex exercise than sanctions on Russia, because the US and allies have broad ties to the Chinese economy.” China claims Taiwan as its territory and last month US Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi after visiting Taipei even fired missiles at the island and sent warships across its unofficial maritime border. Beijing saw Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan as a provocation.
Xi Jinping’s promise on Taiwan
Let us tell you that, Chinese President Xi Jinping has promised to bring democratically governed Taiwan under Beijing’s control and he has made it clear that he will not back down from using force to merge Taiwan with China. . At the same time, Xi Jinping will present his claim to become the President of the country for the third consecutive time at the meeting of the Communist Party Congress next month, and it is believed that Xi Jinping will become even more powerful now and he has decided to become the President for the third time. All domestic adversaries have been dealt with and it is believed that after becoming president for the third time, Xi Jinping can rapidly take an aggressive stance against Taiwan, including invading Taiwan. A US official said that the idea of imposing sanctions against China was also started in February this year after the Russian attack on Ukraine, but the way China has shown aggression after Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan. Immediate sanctions are being considered. However, even after the US and allies had imposed sanctions against Russia, Putin did not back down from attacking.
trying to get allies into confidence
The White House is coordinating sanctions on China between its Asia and European allies and is trying to bring all its allies on the same page. This information has been given to Aljadzeera by a non-US official. At the same time, according to the news of the news agency Reuters, it is not yet clear what will be included in the US sanctions, but some analysts have suggested that the focus may be on China’s military. Craig Singleton at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies said that, the bigger picture could be that the initial sanctions could include techniques that the Chinese military could use to attack Taiwan.
Neither side commented
However, the White House declined to comment on it. While Taiwan’s foreign ministry said it had discussed China’s recent war threats and the “big challenges” China presented to Taiwan and the region with the US, Europe and other like-minded partners, but the details was not disclosed. At the same time, the Chinese Foreign Ministry and the Chinese Embassy in Washington have also not responded to the question asked.
What will happen to India?
Before imposing sanctions on China, America is working on making coordination with its allies, but questions are being raised that if America announces sanctions on China, will India support it or will India also support China? Russia will take the same stand. After the US sanctions on Russia, when India was asked the question, India had made it clear that it does not believe in sanctions, but Russia was a friend of India and India is in constant conflict with China and if If sanctions are imposed on China, then of course it will be good news for India, but in such a situation, will India also follow the sanctions by going with America, or will India’s business with China continue as before? Well, this is a big question. The trade between India and China has crossed $ 100 billion this year and many experts believe that if India supports the sanctions, then India can also be affected, so whatever decision the Indian government will take, She will take it very carefully.
