China’s ambassador to the United States, Qin Gang, has warned of a military conflict should the U.S. continue to “embolden” Taiwan as an independent state.
Qin made the comments during his first one-on-one interview since starting his post in July 2021. He stated that “if the Taiwanese authorities, emboldened by the United States, keep going down the road for independence, it most likely will involve China and the United States, the two big countries, in a military conflict.” The threat came during an interview with NPR at Qin’s official residence in Washington, D.C.
The purpose of the interview was to discuss the upcoming Winter Olympics in Beijing and U.S. relations with China. In December, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian threatened that the U.S. would “pay a price” for it’s decision to hold a diplomatic boycott of the 2022 Winter Olympics due to the ongoing human rights abuses against Uyghur Muslims.
In an unusually direct warning, China’s ambassador to the US talks of future “military conflict” between the US and China.
Qin Gang says that’s “likely” if Taiwan, “emboldened” by the US, “keeps going down the road for independence.”

Qin noted that Taiwan is the “biggest tinder box.” China’s military has flown demonstrations and various military exercises over and near Taiwan. One was conducted during a surprise visit by U.S. lawmakers in November.
