Two days after Czech President-elect @general_pavel and #Taiwan President @iingwen held a historic call, Taiwan Foreign Minister Joseph Wu and Speaker of the Czech Chamber of Deputies held a video conference today, confirming her visit to Taiwan starting March 25.
During the call, both sides exchanged views on Taiwan's National Palace Museum and Czech Republic's National Museum to organize mutual exhibitions, industrial cooperation, and how to deal with the compound threats posed by authoritarianism.
Wu said Taiwan will continue to work with the Czech Republic on different issues based on democratic values, while Adamová praised Taiwan for offering Ukraine different kinds of support, and she believes Taipei and Prague will have more room to cooperate when it ...

Following Czech president-elect @general_pavel and #Taiwan President @iingwen held a phone call on Monday, I talked to @_JakubJanda and @ivana_karaskova about what the call means and how #China might retaliate against Prague. My latest: dw.com/zh/%E5%8F%B0%E…
According to @_JakubJanda, Pavel's call with Tsai is a continuation of increased political ties by the Czech political establishment.
"To the rest of the world and to other democracies in Europe, he is sending a message that’s saying 'we should engage with Taiwan at the highest political level,' which is something that the European Parliament already called for in its official resolution," he told me.

After US Gen. Mike Minihan warned that #China could attack #Taiwan in 2025, some Air Force officer with Air Mobility Command told @Militarydotcom that the communication sparked immediate concern. military.com/daily-news/202…
"Some of my airmen are going to get scared when they read this memo," the officer said. "I felt like a random email blast to thousands of airmen was an inappropriate way to direct them to essentially prepare for war with a near-peer adversary."
"One Air Force C-17 Globemaster III pilot under Air Mobility Command, or AMC said Minihan's comments were unrealistic."

🧵Many thanks to @theEconomist for the opportunity to lay out my thinking about why Western leaders ought to do more to bring the #UkraineRussiaWar to a negotiated close, even while continuing to support #Ukraine. 1/7

As the war nears its one year anniversary, many have already died and millions are suffering. 2/7

bbc.com/news/world-eur…
I sympathize with Ukraine’s desire to fight on, but their maximalist war aims are unrealistic. They are unlikely to be achieved without an huge increase in support from the West, but the West lacks the vital interest that would justify this. 3/7

Michael McCaul, the new chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee in the US House of Representatives said on Sunday that the odds of conflict with #China over #Taiwan “are very high." aljazeera.com/news/2023/1/29…
He was commenting on a memo dated February 1 but released on Friday, in which General Mike Minihan, who heads the Air Mobility Command, wrote to the leadership of its roughly 110,000 members saying: “My gut tells me we will fight in 2025.”
If China failed to take control of Taiwan bloodlessly then “they are going to look at a military invasion in my judgement. We have to be prepared for this”, McCaul said.

Il memorandum confidenziale redatto da Mike Minihan, alto generale dell'aeronautica USA, è da intendersi come un inquietante memento.
Mai un comandante militare del suo livello si era spinto ad azzardare uno scontro tanto ravvicinato tra Stati Uniti e Cina, indicando nel 2025

la data di un possibile, se non addirittura probabile, conflitto.
Nel documento riservato ottenuto da NBC News e visionato dal Financial Times, l'attuale vertice dello US Air Mobility Command si rivolge ai suoi superiori trasferendo il senso del dramma di cui è ambasciatore.

"Spero di sbagliarmi - scrive - Il mio istinto mi dice che combatteremo nel 2025".
Ma le valutazioni di un uomo come Minihan non si basano soltanto sui suoi umori. Il generale vede un allineamento dei pianeti, intesi come "la squadra di Xi, la logica e l'opportunità".

1/12 Thread🧶 riguardo le news sulla partecipazione della #Russia ai Giochi Olimpici 2024 serve, innanzitutto, sgombrare il campo da titoli tendenziosi. Il CIO non afferma che la Russia potrà prenderne parte. Asserisce invece che potranno farlo gli atleti aventi passaporti russo.
2/12 Lo stesso vale per la #Bielorussia. Detto ciò, ci sono alcuni passaggi nello statement del CIO che, a mio avviso, sono fallaci e poco ponderati e mi portano a dare ragione a Zelensky. Li elenco qui e cercherò di fornirne un’analisi. Partiamo dal primo, il seguente passaggio
3/12 Vi invito a leggere lo statement, che riporta le rigorose condizioni per la partecipazione di questi atleti. Le intenzioni sono le migliori, ma il #CIO non considera due aspetti: 1°) il messaggio di apertura che passa, proprio quando i russi inaspriscono gli attacchi in 🇺🇦.

General Mike Minihan, the head of the #US Air Mobility Command, has warned of a conflict with #China as early as 2025, most likely over #Taiwan, and called his commanders to push their units to achieve maximum operational battle readiness this year.
Commander of @AirMobilityCmd stated in an internal memorandum that first surfaced on social media on Friday and was later confirmed as genuine by the Pentagon, that the main goal should be to deter "and, if required, defeat" China.
Minihan said, “I hope I am wrong. My gut tells me we will fight in 2025.”

President Tsai Ing-wen @iingwen announced Chen Chien-jen as #Taiwan's new premier on Friday morning.

President Tsai said, "Today I announced that former VP Chen Chien-jen will take over as head of the cabinet from Su Tseng-chang."

#Taiwan #Politics
The president expressed confidence in the new cabinet led by Chen Chien-jen and stated that 2023 will be a watershed year for Taiwan's development.
The move is part of a cabinet reshuffle following the ruling Democratic Progressive Party's (DPP) heavy losses in local elections last year.

Former Premier Su Tseng-chang resigned last week, along with his cabinet, ahead of the widely anticipated government reorganisation.

... that had actually been successful in terms of the relationship between our countries and managing what is a difficult situation," the Secretary of State said.

“Outdated, boring and impractical. That was the verdict of six young men who spoke to CNN about their recent experiences of mandatory service in #Taiwan's military. They say Taipei will need to do far more than that if it is to make the training effective.”amp.cnn.com/cnn/2023/01/20…
“They describe a process that was designed decades ago with a heavy emphasis on bayonet training, but lacking instruction in urban warfare strategies or modern weapons like drones.
Some say there were too few rifles to go around, or that the weapons they trained with were too old to be of use. Others recount "specializing" in cannon, grenade and mortar units, but never receiving any ammunition to train with.”

As he swore in to become the new chairperson of the ruling @DPPonline, Lai said unilateral changes to the status quo in the Taiwan Strait and acts that undermine regional peace and stability will not receive the support of the international community.
He also said under his leadership, the DPP will continue to stand firm on four insistences, namely, "insisting on a free and democratic constitutional system, insisting on the non-subordination of the sovereignty of the ROC and the People's Republic of China, ...

#Taiwan on Thursday fined Foxconn T$10 million ($329,088) for making an unauthorised investment in a Chinese chip firm, but said the Taiwanese iPhone assembler had cooperated in the case and so received a lesser punishment.” news.yahoo.com/taiwan-fines-f…
Foxconn, a major Apple Inc supplier and the world's largest contract electronics maker, disclosed last July it was a shareholder in Chinese chip conglomerate Tsinghua Unigroup, but said last month it would be selling the stake.
Taiwan’s Economy Ministry said that while Foxconn had acquired the stake without prior approval and so was in breach of regulations, there was no concern about an "outflow of technology" and there was minimal impact on Taiwan's economy or industry.

"The United States always must lead if the important conversations about contingency plans that need to take place are going to take place. Right now, there are important conversations that are taking place, often low key but sometimes, with Taiwan and sometimes without Taiwan."
"Many different formats but what you find is countries around the region are responding to Beijing’s massive military build-up.

In an interview with @CBCNews, #Taiwan foreign minister Joseph Wu said #China is likely looking at the war in #Ukraine to inform a potential invasion of the island. cbc.ca/news/politics/…
"I think what the Chinese are learning from [the war in Ukraine] is the weakness of the Russian military so that they can strengthen themselves in their future possible attack against Taiwan," Wu told host Rosemary Barton.
"Of course, this is going to be a wrong lesson, because war means devastation." Wu said Taiwan is attempting to strengthen its own military capabilities but insisted that the island doesn't want a war with China.

"We are trying to prevent the war from taking place," he said.
