Biden Vows To Defend Taiwan If China Invades

NBC News published this video item, entitled “Biden Vows To Defend Taiwan If China Invades” – below is their description.

President Biden warned Beijing not to invade Taiwan and said he would intervene with the military if necessary. The simple yes appears to defy a longstanding policy of “strategic ambiguity” as U.S. policy doesn’t require military intervention. Taiwan expressed gratitude for the news; China suggests the U.S. should refrain from making wrong signals. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin says U.S. policy “has not changed.”

In This Story: Taiwan

Taiwan, officially the Republic of China, is a country in East Asia. Neighbouring countries include the People’s Republic of China to the northwest, Japan to the northeast, and the Philippines to the south.

The political status of Taiwan is complicated. The Republic of China (ROC) is no longer a member of the UN, having been replaced by the People’s Republic of China (PRC) in 1971. Taiwan is claimed by the PRC, which refuses diplomatic relations with countries that recognise the ROC. Taiwan maintains official diplomatic relations with 14 out of 193 UN member states and the Holy See.
