A Chinese advantage in capacity to produce warheads provides President Xi Jinping a path to nuclear superiority, should he choose to pursue it. The U.S., for its part, would have few options to respond if China decided to continue building beyond 1,500 warheads.
The man who abandons the M5S in order not to be "ambiguous" against the hated Putin has never had a problem cooing with Xi Jinping and his thugs. That is, with the leader and henchmen of a communist regime in comparison to which Putin's Russia would appear liberal and democratic.

The situation between China and Taiwan certainly remains tense despite the fact that the context is quite different from the Ukrainian one. Both Asian countries are well aware of potential developments in Europe. In the meantime, the media-propaganda war is already underway and it is to be hoped that it will not go beyond that.
