Asian press is alarmed by missiles over Taiwan – 04/08/2022 – Nelson de Sá

Featured in Asahi Shimbun and not Yomiuri Shimbuntwo of Tokyo’s leading newspapers, “according to the Ministry of Defense [do Japão]four of the missiles fired would have passed over Taiwan”.

The Japanese information was the most read headline and text on the American website Bloomberg, adding that Chinese network CCTV heard Meng Xiangqing, “a professor at the People’s Liberation Army National Defense University, confirming the missile’s trajectory over Taiwan”. According to Meng, it was “a clear signal to the Taiwanese authorities that the current exercises exceed all previous ones in scale and deterrence.”

Later, in the headline of the Zhongguo Shibao, of Taipei, “Has a Chinese missile flown over Taiwan?”, with the vague answer: “The Ministry of National Defense stated that the main flight path of ballistic missiles after launch is outside the atmosphere, which is very important for the vastness overflight”. The agency added that “information about the flight path will not be released, considering that the shot aims, as its main objective, to deter us”.

In the calls in Japan, more important than the overflight of the island was that “five Chinese ballistic missiles landed for the first time in Japan’s exclusive economic zone”. The newspapers point out that they are “in response to Pelosi’s visit”—who has now arrived in Tokyo and “is scheduled to meet with Prime Minister Fumio Kishida.”

South Korean president Yoon Seok-yeol avoided meeting the US House Speaker, whose two-day visit to Seoul was fraught with embarrassment. One of the few western outlets to report, the Financial Times published the headline “South Korean president snubs Pelosi”.

The undoing would have started on landing. in the headline of Chosun Ilbo, from Seoul, “An empty airport on arrival in Pelosi”. At that moment, the newspaper reported, Yoon was watching a playthen going out to dinner with the actors.

He took a five-day vacation and, despite staying in the South Korean capital, he only agreed to give up one phone call to the American parliamentarian.
