The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) aired a video in which it threatened Japan with a nuclear response and “full-scale war” if it interfered in China’s handling of Taiwan. The video, which appeared on a channel approved by the CCP, singled out Japan as the one exception to China`s policy to not use nuclear weapons against non-nuclear powers, Fox News reported.
“We will use nuclear bombs first, we will use nuclear bombs continuously,” the video said. “We will do this until Japan declares unconditional surrender for the second time,” it further said. The video was deleted from Chinese platform Xigua after gaining 2 million views, but copies were uploaded to YouTube and Twitter, Taiwan News reported. According to Taiwan’s local publication Taiwan News, the 5-minute-long video was uploaded on Sunday on China’s YouTube-like platform Xigua and quickly gained two million views. It was later deleted, but copies of the video, which were uploaded by some users on YouTube and Twitter, still exist. In the video, a narrator dares Japan to interfere when China liberates Taiwan, warning of a full-scare war if the island nation tries to do so, Taiwan News reported. The CCP video also talks about the tension between the two countries and atrocities committed by Japanese soldiers against the Chinese during Sino-Japan wars, Taiwan News further reported.
