Biden says the US will defend Taiwan if China attacks – sport news football96

President Joe Biden said the US would defend Taiwan if China were to attack, an obvious departure from longstanding US foreign policy.

However, a White House spokesman later told some US media outlets that his comments did not imply a change in policy.

The US has a law requiring it to help Taiwan defend itself.

But it has a policy of “strategic ambiguity” that is deliberately vague about what it would actually do if China attacked Taiwan.

China has yet to respond to Mr Biden’s comments.

What is the “One China” policy?
What’s behind the China-Taiwan divide?
What did Biden and the White House say?
At a CNN City Hall event, a participant referred to recent reports that China had tested a hypersonic missile. He asked Mr. Biden if he could “pledge to protect Taiwan” and what he would do to keep up with China’s military development.

Mr. Biden replied, “Yes and yes.” He added that there was no need to worry about them becoming more powerful because “China, Russia and the rest of the world know that we are the most powerful military in the history of the world” .

He was then asked a second time by CNN presenter Anderson Cooper whether the US would provide Taiwan’s defense in the event of an attack by China. Mr. Biden replied: “Yes, we have committed to it.”

A White House spokesman later appeared to take back Mr Biden’s comments, telling the US media that the US “is not announcing any change in our policy and there is no change in our policy”.

This is not the first time this has happened. In August, in an interview with ABC News, Mr. Biden appeared to propose the same stance toward Taiwan. The White House also said at the time that US policy towards Taiwan had not changed.

The US does not have official diplomatic relations with Taiwan, but it does sell weapons to Taiwan under its Taiwan Relations Act, which states that the US must provide the island with the means to defend itself.

It has formal ties with China and also diplomatically recognizes China’s position that there is only one Chinese government.

How did Taiwan and China react?
Taiwan’s presidential office said it would neither give in to pressure nor “rush forward” if it received support.

“Taiwan will show a firm resolve to defend itself,” said president spokesman Xavier Cheng, who also acknowledges the Biden government’s continued “rock-solid” support for Taiwan.

China has not yet responded. But on the previous Thursday, in front of Mr. Biden’s City Hall, China’s UN Ambassador Zhang Jun accused the US of “taking dangerous measures that will steer the situation on the Taiwan Strait in a dangerous direction.”

Tensions between Taiwan and China have increased in recent weeks after Beijing flown dozens of fighter jets into Taiwan’s air defense zone.

China and Taiwan: The Basics
Why do China and Taiwan have bad relations? China and Taiwan were divided during a civil war in the 1940s. Since then, Taiwan has claimed to be an independent country, but China views it as a breakaway province that will eventually be recaptured, if necessary by force
How is Taiwan governed? Although Beijing sees Taiwan as an integral part of its territory, the island has its own constitution that is completely separate from that of China. It also democratically elects its leaders and has approximately 300,000 active soldiers in its armed forces
Who recognizes Taiwan Few countries recognize Taiwan. The Chinese government is calling on other countries to recognize Beijing and not Taiwan as a sovereign state. This has resulted in Taiwan being banned from a number of international forums such as the United Nations and the World Health Organization

With all of the recent talk of a war for control of Taiwan, it is important to remember a few things.

Any attempt by Beijing to retake the island by force would be a gruesome and difficult task.

That doesn’t mean it will never happen, but the Chinese leader who ordered an attack would support Han Chinese fighting the Han Chinese with deadly high-tech weapons in a bloody, ideological conflict.

It wouldn’t matter how well the Chinese government believed it had prepared the people of the mainland for such a conflict and pumped them with propaganda about Taiwanese divisions and so on.

It didn’t matter how gloriously the belligerent Global Times had portrayed the campaign; Images of distant enemy soldiers lying dead on Kenting’s beaches would be hard to gloss over.

Then, after the conquest of Taiwan, there would also be the not inconsiderable challenge of maintaining control of a territory where the vast majority of the 24 million people are against the rule of the Communist Party.

Aside from being responsible for all of this, the leader who ordered such an offensive would also be responsible for causing massive regional instability and potentially attracting troops from the United States as well as other countries like Australia or even Japan.

Xi Jinping would certainly love to reunite Taiwan with mainland China under his leadership, but when you add all of these together, you can see how much the stakes are.

Despite the increasingly fiery rhetoric from some of the Chinese media, it would be argued that cooler heads in the Chinese government would not consider an impending attack.

However, as China’s military power grows, these calculations could change within a few years.
