CHINA - TAIWAN DISPUTE AND THE ROLE OF UNITED STATES WAR RISKS AND CONFLICT
In this article, I discussed the increasing war risks and conflict between China and US on Taiwan and between China and Taiwan on the independence of Taiwan. The study focuses on the basic questions like what if US actually defends Taiwan? and what happens if China invades and attacks on Taiwan? Also, why is Taiwan so beneficial and important for Taiwan as an island? China rejected Taiwan as part of the United Nations because of unhealthy relations and because they don’t recognise them as a separate state. This limitizes the membership of states. It is said that the United States of America continue to send military and defence equipment to Taiwan. The research has employed qualitative methodology under the post-positivist paradigm. The study in conducted under the lens of realism theory. The research concludes at the noticeable point that the current situation going on between China US and Taiwan is quite sensitive and that the year 2022 is going to be quite interesting. US relationship with the island can result in the confrontation of China and US. There is a big question mark on the defence of Taiwan by US.
