August 16, 2022: Niklas Swanström, ISDP’s Executive Director, was interviewed by the Swedish news agency TT on China and the U.S. in the shadow of the China-Taiwan tensions.
“They blame this on the U.S. and say that it is the U.S. government that is trying to break up China, and therefore they feel they have the right to use military means and increase pressure,” said Niklas Swanström.
“This may become the new normal now, that as soon as there are new visits and as soon as there is something that China perceives as support for Taiwan, then these exercises are done. They act extremely provocatively.”
