The Global Times, a tabloid controlled by the Chinese Communist Party, warned Taiwan on Monday it could face the same fate as Afghanistan if it continued relying on the United States as an ally.
The tabloid also wrote of how the U.S. "abandoned their allies, the Kurds," when it withdrew troops from northern Syria in 2019.
Taiwan's President Tsai Ing-wen and other members of the DPP have not fully acknowledged the severity of the circumstances in Afghanistan, the editorial warned.
The reason for the U.S. to be interested in relations with Taiwan is strategic as well as monetary, the Global Times continued.
There is no U.S. military presence on the island of Taiwan."
America's alliance is thus kept by selling arms to Taiwan, all the while encouraging the island to "implement anti-mainland policies through political support and manipulation.
As a result, it has caused a certain degree of depletion between the two sides of the Taiwan Straits.". »
