In Taiwan, Shinzo Abe is (partly) right

Former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe offered sound advice to the US government in an op-ed in the Los Angeles Times last month.

Specifically, Abe argued that America’s position of “strategic ambiguity” — unclear whether or not it would defend Taiwan from Chinese attack — is an idea whose lifespan has expired. Washington must declare that it will defend Taiwan, according to Abe.

Abe explains how Russia’s invasion of Ukraine highlights a risk that, if left unaddressed, will encourage the People’s Republic of China to invade Taiwan.
