German Foreign Minister Burbock vows to support Taiwan if China attacks

German Foreign Minister Annalena Burbock promised that Germany would support Taiwan if China attacked the island nation. “We do not accept when international law is violated and a large neighbor attacks its smaller neighbor in violation of international law – this also applies, of course, to China,” Spiegel quoted Burbock as saying. The situation around Taiwan escalated amid a visit to the island by Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi. Chinese authorities oppose Taipei officials from contacting high-ranking US officials. Earlier, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that the US chose the “path of confrontation” with China when it allowed Pelosi to visit the island.
