US President Joe Biden said on Monday he would be willing to intervene militarily to defend Taiwan, warning that China was “flirting with danger” if it tried to seize the democratic island by force.

Asked in a Tokyo press conference if – following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine – he would be “willing to get involved militarily to defend Taiwan if it comes to that?” he responded: “Yes…that’s a commitment we made.”

He added: “The idea that it could be taken by force, just taken by force, is just not..it would dislocate the entire region and be another action similar to what happened in Ukraine. So, it’s a burden that’s even stronger.”
