3:31 pm
but how real is the threat we talked about the possible scenarios. welcome to news glad you could join us an island with no formal diplomatic ties with most of the world is about to welcome a high ranking u.s. envoy on wednesday u.s. ambassador to the u.n. cruft travels to taiwan an island which neither the united states nor the united nations recognize as a country in fact up until a few days back official u.s. policy restricted interactions between u.s. and taiwanese diplomats. and that's because china has always claimed taiwan as a part of its territory and the u.s. like other u.n. member states recognizes china not taiwan but u.s.
3:32 pm
secretary of state mike bombero has overturned the u.s. restrictions saying there were meant to court appease the chinese government naturally the change in u.s. rules and kelly craft upcoming visit haven't gone down well in china. we advise u.s. secretary of state pump to have a clear understanding of history to stop manipulating taiwan related issues to stop acting insta trend and not to go further down this wrong and dangerous path otherwise he will be severely punished by history needed to move on. and spoke to taiwan's representative to germany should you where and i began by asking him what taiwan expected from kelly crofts visit we are expecting weise great preacher on to work come the visit the official visit out there to support that visit of
3:33 pm
the ambassador of the us to united nations. craft i think it keeps a sign to the work that just like. the state secretary or us is pointed out in his press it's. really crazy that he is that one shares their us in their view we say us a we share the democracy we oppose to democracy is we should come to use of individual freedom the rule of low in the respect for human dignity and because china because their infrastructure not have one has been treated very very unfair for the last 4 or even 5 take the case and so. i'm certain propped the main question really is the. crofts visit and there's a closeness if you like between the combat ministration and the government in
3:34 pm
taiwan do you see this carrying over into the new biden administration which is ridiculous for in just a matter of days. it where people would say that will be the last the parting gift of trumped government for taiwan but i think it's also it's also in a part of inferior use for the trump government from the truck come into department government because it both democrats and republicans of the usa are not worth our friends has been kept in always been the friends of the tyrant governments sue i think it's going to be a pretty good inference that one of the inference for the biden government that would take it off because it goes into the sim direction which by didn't know what to do for taiwan because it's in the interest of the usa not in the interests
3:35 pm
of trump government i would have to say that right now the relation between the us and taiwan of historically being supported by the so-called taiwan donations from the center to the us is required by this law to support taiwan with arms sales so it can defend itself against china but there is no legal requirement for the us to actually defend taiwan in the affair event of an attack by china do you think they need to be a change in this. their terror one reaches act is to hip and 10 the security this step step edited to freedom skewed against a pretty in-depth racist and pacific not the in the telling street suit the importance of taiwan the strategically importance of taiwan is not only for taiwan is oso for usa but your pen took in the south korea and for the engine countries such as the i could even say for australia new zealand to end indian so. it should
3:36 pm
it be should see it comes to the country it's a war if it's china it's very true in the it's probably one that would mean not only a war between telling turner but those who were declared from the china cuba usa to japan today. in the pacific i would say that is the question should be putin it and not the way if taiwan is going to be invaded by china then it means. is it were of china against the would of freedom so i would say if china would do the earth usa japan and i would they say even the e.u. e.u. countries because their interest their trade interest would be damaged shoot taiwan be taken over by turn stark warning from there where taiwan's are president into
3:37 pm
germany thank you so much for joining us. and taiwan has lived with the threat of the chinese a vision for 7 decades but with china dramatically building up its navy and military in recent years the threat has presented new levels double international editor richard walker looked at the threat as part of the largest special report. february 2020 taiwan's air force releases this image to the media it shows a taiwanese jet fighter intercepting a chinese boma flying near its airspace a rank glimpse of the dangerous tension in the skies so we are spending our skies defending all our waters every more but in the last few decades this constant pressuring from the chinese side is like a stress test on multiple levels it's hardly going to demoralizing the taiwanese
3:38 pm
public but it's also simply wearing down time once planes. one has to scramble. not only. made their number of hours and it also takes 'd away all their activity that would prove their right. and perhaps most importantly all of these probing generates hugely valuable insights for the chinese military james final who led u.s. naval intelligence in the pacific explains you have to know your adversaries defense a structure and its network. there's radar system where the weaknesses were the strengths how long does it take a fighter of 16 fighter i want to get off the ground to respond to a dream. based on their mapping all of that out in the cyber realm to china continues to probe and chip away. at least an assumed building in shanghai
3:39 pm
reportedly houses the military hacking unit 61398 the taiwan suspects of launching many attacks they're constantly going in taiwan with cyber attacks with this information misinformation. and of course espionage. and with its open society taiwan is highly vulnerable to disinform ation camp. pains for those of us watching from the outside we owe it to the people of the region to sit up and pay attention. to the flash point they could blow up into a devastating conference. that special report of course from did of an international editor richard walker who joins me now on the line richard good to have you is taiwan in immediate danger. well the rest as we just saw in that clip there and as we heard from the representative here in germany taiwan is under pretty much constant threats. almost under constant
3:40 pm
attack whether it be cyber attack or other activities that are in this kind of graze so kind of hostile acts that have below the level of of outright military action now china says that it prefers to seek unification is stated goal by peaceful means and that it would like to implement a one country 2 systems approach in taiwan of the kind that we've seen in hong kong but of course if you're sitting in taiwan of the last couple of years watching what's been happening in hong kong that doesn't look all that appealing right now one country 2 systems essentially collapsed under the weight of its own clear contradictions and china is rounding up all sorts of democratic activists and pushing them in jail so if china is seeking to unite with taiwan by persuasion it's going about it in a pretty funny way so that leaves the question well what kind of military options
3:41 pm
might it be looking at and that is very important to stress here that the chinese do reserve the right they say to use force to unite taiwan with china so in the course of this film we look at 3 different scenarios one kind of continuing at this chipping away that we've just seen that one where they mount an attack on an outlying territory you know in the way that we saw russia do with crimea and then finally a full scale invasion the most dangerous scenario what is the role you see the united states playing in the event of such an attack by china. well it's interesting because as we just heard from the representatives there and as you pointed out in your introduction to be rushed the united states is not fully committed to defending taiwan in the event that there is an invasion it is committed to providing taiwan weapons and it is also committed to provide for maintaining the capability to defend taiwan but not actually promising to defend it
3:42 pm
so there's a debate going on about that about whether that is too mushy whether the u.s. needs to make a cost on commitment with supporters of that with saying that that would stabilize the situation that would create a clarity strategic clarity in this in this flashpoint area but others say no this would be too provocative towards china and also runs the risk of a taiwanese government behaving irresponsibly just knowing that it has that american support i think one thing to point out is that everyone agrees that taiwan is particularly vulnerable when the united states is weak or distracted if you look at what's going on in the united states at the moment if you can imagine whether it would be anybody in any position politically to step in in favor of taiwan at the moment that's a big question so taiwan is very much on edge at the moment just about 30 seconds left richard what does this mean for the incoming biden administration and its relations with taiwan with the by ministries we know is going to want to stabilize the united states and stabilize the situation internationally too so it's not going
3:43 pm
to want to rock the boat massively but there's an early test that we all need to be watching out for joe biden says that he wants to call a summit of democracies partly as a way of kind of generating unity in the face of chinese authoritarianism he invites high want to that or does he not that is a big dilemma for the incoming administration reserve oka under so much. and you can find richard book a special report on our new 2 page robot. about. the fight against the corona virus pandemic. has the rate of infection in developing what does the latest research say. information and context the coronavirus update 19. and d w. 2 children 2

3:45 pm
cases than we've seen ever before numbers that cannot be explained away by the meteoric rise in testing. japan is trying to isolate a new variant from brazil there's no proof any of them are any deadly but the virus is constantly changing and could eventually make vaccines less effective. or watching evolution take place right in front of our eyes the new coronavirus is doing everything it can to survive the coming clever a jumping from host to host the hope is that where doing everything we can to survive many big economies are back in lockdown including south africa. this isn't a waiting room it's the treatment room for coffin 19 patients at the hospital in kyle each. one patient calls out to tell us she's been sitting and waiting for 3 days waiting for a bed to become free next door you'll recall certainly to do with the do more good
