FEARS of World War Three have been reignited after China warned Taiwan it should be "trembling" as the US "won't protect" the island from invasion.

With chaotic scenes erupting across Afghanistan amid a Taliban takeoverafter President Joe Biden decided to withdraw US troops after 20 years, Beijing has warned Taiwan "can't rely" on America in a crisis.

Li Haidong, a professor at the Institute of International Relations of the China Foreign Affairs University, said he believes the US is set to "cast aside" Taiwan should Taipei push for independence. 

"The US' fleeing action is a warning to the Taiwan secessionists, or rather, a forecast," he told the Global Times.
