Military response to China's invasion of Taiwan: That’s the commitment USA, Biden made

 

 -

 Biden has pledged to use the US military to defend Taiwan if China were to invade in remarks made during his first visit to Japan as US president. 

“Yes.  That is the commitment we made,” Biden said at a joint news conference in Tokyo on Monday when asked whether he was willing to use force to defend Taiwan. 

 Speaking alongside Fumio Kishida, Japan’s prime minister, Biden added that if China were to take Taiwan by force, “it will dislocate the entire region and be another action similar to what happened in Ukraine”. 

Biden’s response appeared to overturn the decades-old US policy of “strategic ambiguity” under which Washington does not make clear if it would defend Taiwan in the face of Chinese hostilities.
