  Taiwan Dismisses Kissinger Prediction That China Won't Invade in 10 Years An "all-out" attack on Taiwan was unlikely in the next decade, said the former secretary of state, but China would seek to weaken Taiwan's autonomy.Kissinger, 98, is a highly regarded political figure in Beijing for his role in normalizing relations between the United States and China.

The comments of Shinzo Abe "deliver the sovereignty of China and bring a shameless support to the independence forces of Taiwan," said Hua Chunying.

"China opposes it resolutely", was it indicated in the statement.

The Secretary General of the Japanese Government, Hirokazu Matsuno, said Tokyo disapproved the reaction of Beijing, the Japanese executive is not in a position to comment on the remarks made by a person who was not part of the government.

"Ambassador Tarumi said it was necessary for China to understand that some Japanese have such opinions and that Japan can not accept China's unilateral views on these issues," he has declared.

Wednesday, at a virtual forum organized by a Taiwanese reflection circle, Shinzo Abe said that an armed invasion of Taiwan would be a serious danger for Japan.

Shinzo Abe, who left his prime minister last year, is at the head of the greatest faction of the Liberal-Democratic Party (PLD) in power and remains influential within the party. (Report Josh Horwitz, French version Camille Raynaud)
