On May 25th, according to the U.S. State Department, Secretary of State Anthony Blinken will deliver a major policy speech at George Washington University on May 26th, detailing the Biden administration’s approach to U.S.-China relations. Blinken will be delivering the speech after President Joe Biden’s visit to Japan, where Biden said the United States would be willing to intervene militarily to protect Taiwan if CCP invaded it.
Senior officials from the United States and its Asia allies say Russia’s aggression against Ukraine undermines the foundations of the international order and that any attempt to change the current situation by force in Asia or elsewhere in the world is unacceptable. Matthew Funaiole, a senior fellow of the China Power Project at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, told the Voice of America the United States has long believed that the future of Taiwan should be decided by the people of Taiwan, and that this future should be decided in a peaceful manner.
U.S State Department spokesman Edward “Ned” Price said on May 24th that Washington’s One China Policy is different from Beijing’s One China Principle. The policy is guided by the Taiwan Relations Act, Three Joint Communiqués and Six Assurances. The Chinese Communist Party often tries to misinterpret our policy in briefings and statements by its senior officials.
The United States has been clear that the decision to establish diplomatic relations with China in 1979 was based on the expectation that “the future of Taiwan will be determined peacefully” under the Taiwan Relations Act. The United States has never accepted the Chinese Communist Party’s claim to sovereignty over Taiwan and has avoided taking any position on Taiwan’s sovereignty. The CCP has never ruled Taiwan, but claims sovereignty over this self-governing democracy, and the CCP has not ruled out the possibility of using force to control Taiwan.
