US military will defend Taiwan 'if it comes to that,' Biden says

Very quickly, you didn’t want to get involved in the Ukraine conflict militarily for obvious reasons. Are you willing to get involved militarily to defend Taiwan if it comes to that?” a reporter asked the president during a news conference in Japan.

“是,” Biden replied.

You are?” the reporter pressed.

That’s the commitment we made,” 总统说.

A White House spokesperson told Fox News that the administration’s policyhas not changed.

As the President said, our policy has not changed,” 发言人说. “He reiterated our One China Policy and our commitment to peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait. He also reiterated our commitment under the Taiwan Relations Act to provide Taiwan with the military means to defend itself.

的 “One China policyrefers to the U.S. recognition of the People’s Republic of China as the sole legal government of China, but only acknowledges, without endorsing, Beijing’s claim that Taiwan is part of China.

Russian President Vladimir Putin considers Ukraine a part of historic Russia, and Xi considers Taiwan a part of China.

CHINA LAUNCHES MILITARY EXERCISES IN SOUTH CHINA SEA AS BIDEN VISITS ASIA

在十月, Biden said the U.S. would defend Taiwan if China attacks. A Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson responded by saying, “No one should underestimate the strong resolve, determination and capability of the Chinese people to safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity. China has no room for compromise.

China launched military exercises in the disputed South China Sea as Biden’s trip to East Asia began Friday.

Asia expert Gordon Chang, author of ‘The Great US-China Tech War,” said the Biden administration is trying to backtrack previous indications that America fears China by proceeding with Taiwan discussions in the face of public warnings from Chinese officials. 张告诉 “狐狸 & 朋友周末” on Sunday that China’s recent military drill is “[object Window]” to Biden’s Asia visit because his joint statement with South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol mentioned Taiwan directly.

They are connected because, before Biden touched down in South Korea – the first stop on the trip – the Chinese publicly warned him not to talk about Taiwan and so there was the joint statement between President Biden and President Yoon Suk Yeol of South Korea, which specifically mentions Taiwan,” 张说. “There are going to be a lot of Taiwan discussions in Japan, the second and last stop on this tripand so really what the United States was saying to Beijing is, “‘I’m not afraid of you anymore.'

The reason the administration has to do that is because, in the last couple of weeks, the Biden team has done things that made it look like it was intimidated by China, which is the reason why the Chinese were very aggressive before the trip, because they thought they had Biden on the run,” Chang added.

俄罗斯入侵乌克兰 upended Chinese President Xi Jinping’s timetable to invade Taiwan, according to documents purportedly written by a Russian intelligence analyst in one of Moscow’s security agencies.

Xi Jinping was at least considering taking over Taiwan in the fallhe needs his own little victory to get re-elected for a third termthere the struggle within the elite is colossal,” an agent in Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB), the successor agency to the KGB, allegedly wrote on March 9.

“现在, after the Ukrainian events, this window of opportunity has been closed to him, which gives the United States the opportunity to both blackmail Xi and negotiate with its competitors on favorable terms,” the FSB agent added. “It was in this case that we launched a trap mechanism for China with our actions.
