China ‘determined to take Taiwan’

ASPI’s Malcolm Davis says under the leadership of Xi Jinping, China is determined to take Taiwan.

Mr Davis’ remarks come after US President Joe Biden met with his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, to discuss a range of issues.

President Xi warned the United States against “playing with fire,” claiming “we firmly oppose the secession of Taiwan independence and the intervention of external forces”.

“The Chinese are making it clear to President Biden that they’re claiming the entirety of the Taiwan Strait as Chinese waters,” Mr Davis told Sky News Australia.
