Russia's invasion of Ukraine earlier this year and, more recently, China's frequent military exercises in the Taiwan Strait all threaten the stability of the entire Indo-Pacific region. The international community must work together to respond to authoritarian expansion and provocation. An invasion of Taiwan would have a huge impact on democratic values and the overall Indo-Pacific region. Taiwan and Japan share a commitment to the values of democracy and freedom, and our partnership is of critical importance to security. We should continue deepening our cooperation to ensure regional peace, stability, freedom, and prosperity.
