President Tsai Ing-wen reponds to the article saying Taiwan is now most dangerous place on earth

Taiwan is now the "most dangerous place on earth" as it becomes "an arena for the rivalry between China and the United States," according to the London-base international magazine The Economist warned in its latest issue, CNA reported.

President Tsai Ing-wen said The Economist article highlighted the threat that China's military expansion poses to the Taiwan Strait and the surrounding areas.

"I hope the Beijing authorities come to realize that the PLA's actions in this regard contradict their own proclamations of China's "peaceful rise" and are only driving greater international concern," she wrote.

"But though Taiwan does face a real threat from China, I want to assure everyone that our government is fully capable of managing all potential risks and protecting our country from danger," she added.

Meanwhile, Johnny Chiang, chairman of Kuomintang, Taiwan's main opposition party, told reporters on the sideline of a religious event that The Economist article echoed his view that the Taiwan Strait should not become a battleground for superpowers vying for influence.
