Taiwan issue is on the cover of the current issue of The Economist magazine. The Economist says Taiwan is the most dangerous region in the world and will become a catastrophe if war breaks out.
The Economist said in a Facebook post today that Taiwan is one of the most dangerous places on earth. A war in the Taiwan Strait would be a disaster, and therefore the United States and China must do their utmost to avoid it.
The Economist’s cover of this issue shows Chinese warships and military aircraft in the Taiwan Strait, while U.S. warships and military aircraft are present off the east, suggesting that Taiwan occupies an important strategic position in the power struggle between China and the United States.
The Economist also published an article that Taiwan could trigger a full-scale war between the United States and China. The sovereignty of the island of Taiwan has been disputed for centuries, and tensions may soon come to a head.
