Japan's ominous warning of impending Taiwan 'crisis'.

JAPAN has warned growing military tensions around Taiwan, along with increased economic and technological rivalry between the US and China, could threaten peace and stability in East Asia.
The warning was published in the annual defence white paper, which for the first time dealt with the issue of stability around Taiwan. The report paid particular attention to growing military tensions between Beijing and Washington. It noted: "China has further intensified military activities around Taiwan including Chinese aircraft entering the southwestern airspace of Taiwan.
"In the meantime, the United States has demonstrated a clear stance of supporting Taiwan in military aspects, such as transits by US vessels through the Taiwan Strait and weapon sales.”

The report argued that instability in the region would pose a serious threat to Japan's security and that of the international community.

It added: "Therefore, it is necessary that we pay close attention to the situation with a sense of crisis more than ever before."

China has stepped up its military activities around Taiwan, as it seeks to stamp its authority over the islands.

Recent months have seen repeated incursions by Chinese fighters into Taiwan's air defence identification zone (ADIZ).

Beijing claims full sovereignty over Taiwan and has made no secret that it is prepared to use force to take it back.
In a recent address to mark the the 100th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party, President Xi Jinping reiterated that ambition, as well as promising to crush any push for independence on the island.

He told his audience: "No one should underestimate the strong determination, firm will and strong ability of the Chinese people to safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity."

As tensions grow over Taiwan, Japan has become increasingly more engaged in the issue.

Earlier in July, Deputy Prime Minister Taro Aso provoked China's wrath, when he suggested Japan should team up with the US to defend Taiwan from any invasion.

Beijing reacted with fury to the comments, warning Tokyo they “harmed the political foundation of China-Japan relations”.
