The former leader of NATO has implored nations to demonstrate repercussions to China if it decides to launch an attack on Taiwan.

Everyone who has faith in a democratic Taiwan and a global arrangement based on regulations ought to endeavor to guarantee Ukraine’s triumph. It is up to Ukraine and Taiwan’s people to determine their destiny, so the free world should give them our backing.

During his excursion to Taiwan on Thursday, Jan. 5, the former secretary-general of NATO Anders Fogh Rasmussen remarked that democracies should make it unmistakable that China would suffer intense financial repercussions should it attempt to encroach on the self-governed nation.

“Any attempt by China to change the status quo in Taiwan by force should spark an equally unified response, and we must make this clear to China now,” he said.
