The White House has walked back on Joe Biden’s latest remark on Taiwan. This came hours after the U.S. president told a CNN forum that Washington would come to Taiwan’s defense if it were attacked. The statement contradicted a long-standing U.S. policy of what it calls strategic ambiguity over 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 The Republic of China (ROC) is no longer a member of the UN, having been replaced by the People’s Republic of China (PRC) in 1971.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.
