Blinken had planned on giving a speech on the China policy earlier, but it had been postponed after he tested positive for the CCP virus on May 4. Blinken’s speech will be held after Biden’s visit to Japan and will further elaborate on President Biden’s policy towards China.
President Biden’s statement during his visit to Japan made it clear that if the CCP invades Taiwan, the United States will intervene with force. A senior official said that the invasion of Ukraine launched by Russia has damaged the foundation of the international order, and any attempt to change the status quo by force in Asia or other parts of the world is unacceptable.
U.S. State Department spokesperson Price said that the CCP often misinterprets U.S. policies in briefings and statements, and continues to do so. This is something that the CCP has been good at for a long time.
In addition, the Biden administration has made it clear that it will be truly focused on, and expand and strengthen, the U.S. position in the Indo-Pacific region.
