In the midst of a border dispute, China has been furious over India playing Taiwan cards. The Chinese government magazine Global Times advised India to play Taiwan cards, saying that if India supported Taiwan’s independence, it should remember that China too could support separatists in many of its states. However, China has already been involved in such a conspiracy.
Long Xingchun, a senior research fellow from China, said in an article in the Global Times that several media outlets published by India featured advertisements for Taiwan’s National Day and a TV channel interviewed Taiwan’s Foreign Minister Joseph Wu, They are talking like separatists. Since the Foreign Minister’s interview, there has been a debate in China as to how to respond to the way India is trying to get closer to Taiwan.
Shingchun said that the separatists of Taiwan and India are of the same kind. If India supports Taiwan’s independence then it should be aware that China too can play the Indian separatist card.
