Beijing: The Chinese Communist Party recently aired a video which warned Japan of a nuclear response and "full-scale war" if the island nation interferes in its handling of Taiwan.
The video, which appeared on a channel approved by the CCP, singles out Japan as the one exception to China’s policy to not use nuclear weapons against non-nuclear powers, reports Fox News.
"We will use nuclear bombs first," the video was quoted as saying by the news channel. "We will use nuclear bombs continuously. We will do this until Japan declares unconditional surrender for the second time."
#CCP Vows to Nuke #Japan if Japan defends #Taiwan. As Japan is the only country that has been nuked, so nuking Japan "will get twice the result with half the effort."— Jennifer Zeng 曾錚 (@jenniferatntd) July 13, 2021
The CCP claims that it will "liberate Taiwan," and it warns against Japan deploying "one soldier, one plane or one ship", read the news report.
Chinese platform Xingua eliminated the video after it gained 2 million views.
Prior to its deletion, netizens posted it on Western social media platforms such as YouTube and Twitter, reports Taiwan News.
