Erdogan on Taiwan: We must not allow a new crisis in the world

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan warned of a new global crisis in connection with the Taiwanese dossier, especially since the world is still under the influence of the Ukrainian crisis.

Erdogan said on Saturday: “A new crisis cannot be allowed to arise while the negative effects of the war in Ukraine and the coronavirus pandemic on the economy and global stability continue.”

Earlier, Taiwan accused the Chinese army of simulating an attack on the island, while Beijing stepped up its response to US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan.

China considered Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan a “provocation” after Washington pledged not to establish official relations with the island, which China considers part of its territory.

China continues today, Saturday, the most important maneuvers around Taiwan, which will last until Sunday, and the Taiwanese authorities see these maneuvers as preparations for a “siege” of the island.

On the eve of the Chinese army announced that it had deployed fighters, bombers, a number of destroyers and escort boats to participate in the maneuvers, which are carried out “day and night.”

He issued a warning to Taiwan and the United States, which Beijing accuses of violating its obligations, by strengthening relations with the Taiwanese authorities in recent years.
