"This is dangerous. Beijing is watching closely. And learning lessons that may influence its future decisions,” Stoltenberg said, adding, “What is happening in Europe today could happen in East Asia tomorrow. So we must remain united and firm. Standing together for freedom and democracy.”
Since the onset of the Russia-Ukraine war, China’s rising aggression toward Taiwan has been a constant point of discussion among top world leaders. Xi’s government has been ramping up military and political pressure to try and get Taipei to accept Beijing's sovereignty, including staging war games near the island and warplanes into Taiwan's air defense zone.
Stoltenberg said China’s behavior was a matter of serious concern. “China is substantially building up its military forces, including nuclear weapons. Bullying its neighbors and threatening Taiwan. Trying to control critical infrastructure."
