Taipei (Reuters) -Taiwanese Defense Minister Chiu Kuo-chen said Thursday that the island would not begin a war with China amid heightened tensions in the sensitive Taiwan Strait.

“The Republic of China will never start a war,” Chiu told Congress, citing the official name of Taiwan.

Military tensions with China, which claims Taiwan as its territory, are the worst in more than 40 years, Chiu said last week at https://www.reuters.com/world/china/taiwan-defence-minister-says- Said china. -will-have-ability-mount-full-scale-invasion-2021-10-06, added that China will be able to launch a “full-scale” aggression by 2025.
