Strait warning

“If the US wants to talk we will keep the door open. If they want to fight, we will fight until the end. Bully us? No way!”


China’s Defence Minister Wei Fenghe hits out at Washington during the Shangri La Forum in Singapore. He also attacked the 1979 US Taiwan Relations Act: “How can the US enact a law to interfere in China’s internal affairs?” He pointed out that Abraham Lincoln had fought a civil war to stop the southern states seceding from the US. “The US is indivisible and so is China.”
