The US State Department has issued a statement calling on China to stop pressure on Taiwan.
The former Trump administration, which has deepened its confrontation with China, has been strengthening relations with Taiwan, but the new Biden administration has also shown its willingness to continue this policy and has restrained China.
US State Department spokesman Price released a statement yesterday that China's military pressure on Taiwan threatens regional peace and stability.
The statement noted that it was concerned about China's continued actions to intimidate neighboring countries and regions, such as Taiwan, and put military, diplomatic, and economic pressure on Taiwan. He urges us to stop and engage in dialogue with democratically elected Taiwanese representatives.
In addition, the United States will deepen relations with Taiwan for security in the Indo-Pacific region and will cooperate with allies.
The former Trump administration, which has deepened its confrontation with China, has strengthened its relations with Taiwan, but the new Biden administration has basically continued this policy and restrained China by showing an attitude of deepening relations with Taiwan. In this way, a backlash is expected from China.
