It is reported on May 27, the U.S. Secretary of State Blinken delivered a speech on China policy at George Washington University. In the speech, Blinken criticized the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) for intensifying its coercion against Taiwan. As the CCP military planes disturbed Taiwan almost every day, he again determined to maintain the stability of the Taiwan Strait and expand cooperation with Taiwan.

Blinken reiterated that multiple U.S. administrations have been consistent on Taiwan policy over the decades, and U.S. policy has not changed. The U.S remains committed to the “one China” policy guided by the Taiwan Relations Act, the three joint communiqués, and the six assurances.

He said that the U.S. has always had a long-lasting interest in peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait and will continue to fulfill its commitments under the Taiwan Relations Act (TRA) to assist Taiwan in maintaining adequate self-defense capabilities against harm. The U.S. maintains the ability to confront any force or other forms of coercion that Taiwan’s security or social or economic system as stated in the TRA.

Blinken also criticized the CCP’s increasingly arrogant behavior. For example, attempts to cut off Taiwan’s relations with other countries in the world, prevent Taiwan from participating in international organizations, etc. Beijing’s rhetoric and activities have also become increasingly provocative, sending military planes near Taiwan almost daily.

In response to Blinken’s speech on China policy, Taiwan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a statement saying: “Taiwan and the United States have always had close and good channels of communication. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is pleased to see Secretary Blinken reiterate that the United States will adhere to its security commitment to Taiwan and will continue to support Taiwan’s participation in international business.”

Blinken’s speech on China can be viewed as a response from the Biden administration to the CCP.

In his speech, Blinken also spoke about the U.S. continuing to oppose Beijing’s aggression and illegal activities in the South and East China Seas. The United States will support coastal states in the region in asserting their maritime rights.
