Will biden's remarks on 'defending taiwan' further escalate tensions?

CGTN published this video item, entitled “Will Biden’s remarks on ‘defending Taiwan’ further escalate tensions?” – below is their description.

U.S. President Joe Biden has further provoked China by promising a U.S. military response if China were to “invade Taiwan.” The statement has been heavily opposed by Beijing, with officials warning Washington to not send the “wrong signals” to Taiwan separatists. CGTN’s Xie Hongzhou examines how Biden’s remarks are further fueling an already tense situation in the Taiwan Straits.

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 The Republic of China (ROC) is no longer a member of the UN, having been replaced by the People’s Republic of China (PRC) in 1971.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.
