TAIPEI (TVBS News) — Taiwan People's Party Chairman Ko Wen-je told reporters that Japan is concerned about Taiwan's safety after meeting with experts from the Japan Institute for National Fundamentals Wednesday (June 7).

As tensions rise across the Taiwan Strait, Taiwan's presidential election has raised concerns among Japanese scholars, who anticipate an impact on international affairs. 

 

Ko stated the reason is "due to the significant passage of approximately 97% of Japan's energy resources through the waters near Taiwan." Therefore if something happens to Taiwan, Japan will be affected as well.

Ko also highlighted Japan's position on the international stage. "Japan's initiation of the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue and proposal of the Free and Open Indo-Pacific has influenced the U.S. strategy in the Indo-Pacific region, enhancing Japan's significance in Asia and the world," Ko said. 

Before the 90-minute closed-door meeting with the think tank, Ko hoped that "through today's meeting, we can gain a better understanding of the future of Taiwan, Japan, and even the world." 
 

The Japan Institute for National Fundamentals is a public and foreign policy think tank founded in December 2007 in Tokyo, Japan. Many members are retired from the Japan Self-Defense Forces.
