Chen Mingtong, Director of the Taiwan National Security Bureau, said that if Communist China decides to invade Taiwan, the Diaoyutai Islands would be included as its attack target. Japan would be an active player, not a spectator. 

If Communist China decides to invade Taiwan, the Diaoyutai Islands (known as the Senkaku Islands in Japan) would be included as its attack target, Chen Mingtong, Director of Taiwan National Security Bureau and Taiwan intelligence agency, said at the meeting of the legislature’s Foreign Affairs and National Defense Committee on May 16. Japan would be an active player, not a spectator. 

The above is Director Chen’s answer to the question posed by the ruling DPP legislator Wang Dingyu, whose question is whether Japan’s Indo-Pacific strategy or Japan’s role in the region has changed. 

Director Chen pointed out that a series of Communist China’s military exercises with live ammunition recently around the Taiwan Strait have been exposed to the world, and Japan is also taking it seriously. He said Communist China’s complete unification goals included seizing and militarizing Diaoyutai Islands, which directly threatened Japan.
