Economic suicide

“A Taiwan emergency is a Japan emergency. That is, it’s an emergency for the US-Japan alliance as well”


Former Japanese leader Abe Shinzo issues a warning during a speech on Wednesday. He said a Chinese invasion of Taiwan could see Tokyo deploy its military. Describing an attack as “economic suicide”, Abe said a “military adventure in Taiwan” would have a “grave impact” on the global economy, the Financial Times reported. “In other words, China would be severely hurt,” Abe predicted.
