According to a story in Breitbart.com on September 17th, 2021, Japan is committed to providing a “necessary response” to China if it continues to ramp up its military aggression toward Taiwan and spark a legitimate conflict, Japanese Defense Minister Nobuo Kishi told CNN on Thursday. “More than ninety percent of the energy that Japan uses is imported through the sea around Taiwan, so it’s important to maintain the maritime order and a free and open Indo-Pacific,” he continued. China claims both Taiwan and the Senkakus as its own territory and has increased its military presence near the respective islands in recent months. While acknowledging that Tokyo is “not directly committed to the defense of Taiwan,” Kishi said that it remains “very important” for Japan to support “stability on the Taiwan Strait.”
