Chinese Media Warning: If Taiwan Changes Name of Office in U.S., China Will Respond With ‘Military’ Action

Chinese propagandist Hu Xijin, editor of China’s state-run Global Times, warned in a video that if the United States allows Taiwan to change the name of its representative office in the U.S. from “Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office” to “Taiwan Representative Office” that China will respond with military action.

The Global Times is known for being a jingoistic publication that often makes more extreme statements than the Chinese Communist Party. . .

“Beijing will definitely take economic and military actions against the arrogance of the U.S. and Taiwan,” Hu continued. “At this point, it is foreseeable that the mainland fighter jets will fly over the island of Taiwan. The mainland has been planning it for a long time. I’d like to point out that the U.S. and Taiwan have continued to increase the mainland’s cost of maintaining peace in the Taiwan Straits. More than half of China’s diplomatic troubles have to do with the Taiwan question. Calls for a thorough solution to the Taiwan question through force are consistently increasing in the mainland. The Taiwan question is getting very close to the tipping point.”
