A leaked audio clip tweeted by Jennifer Zeng, a Chinese human rights activist, allegedly shows Chinese military officials discussing plans to invade Taiwan.

The commanders are heard in the video/audio clip saying to “resolutely implement the orders of the Party’s central committee, President Xi, and resolutely carry out Guangdong’s mission to secure resources for a strategic and decisive victory.”


“We will not hesitate to start a war, crush Taiwan’s independence and the plots of our powerful enemies, and resolutely defend our national sovereignty and territorial integrity,” he said.

“This is the Party Central Committee, General Secretary Xi Jinping’s major strategic decision to coordinate the overall picture of international and domestic affairs.”

The YouTube video posted by Zeng has gone viral with experts examining China’s stated aims to annex Taiwan. However, it is still unverified and is under review by various security agencies.

The explosive video is titled: “War Mobilization Meeting of the PLA and Guangdong Province” and classified as a “top secret recording”. It details the “mobilization” in six major cities of the Pearl River Delta and the main deployment of the 74th Army Group as “key support”.

“In terms of mobilization, we need to coordinate the two areas of the Taiwan Strait and the South China Sea,” we heard.

The discussion also reveals that the commanders are ready to deploy the Tiantong-1 ultra-shortwave satellite phone to establish mobile communications on the move, including the use of 140,000 personnel, 953 ships of various types and 1,653 units of various unmanned equipment, including the use of drones.

Commanders intend to use 38 aircraft, 588 railcars and 19 civilian facilities, including airports and docks, under the mobilization plan to “give full support to the decisive battle in the Straits of Taiwan”.

In the video, the commanders plan to “mobilize overseas Chinese and overseas Chinese organizations to actively participate in supporting” military operations.

The plan involves a “sea defense brigade” focused on “the Pearl River Delta region to avert chaos.”

Jennifer Zeng claimed that the meeting took place on May 14 and was “top secret” while informing that “according to the rules of the CCP and the PLA, anyone who dares to divulge information about this meeting is liable to death”.
