Aquilino feared that a Chinese invasion of Taiwan would also completely destroy the world economy because the world is so intertwined.

At the same time, he said that President Xi should realize that when the international community does not agree to act in the same way as the Russian attack on Ukraine, he can rally quickly.

He emphasized that any attacker would face condemnation from the world, just as Russian President Vladimir Putin is currently being condemned by the international community.

Aquilino did not answer a question asked when he expected China to attack Taiwan.

He added that his mission is twofold: “The first mission is to prevent a war like this (like the Chinese invasion of Taiwan) from happening, and if the first mission fails, be ready to fight and win.” Correspondent Bae Seok-hyun
