Biden Admn Changes Wording On Taiwan Independence…

Authored by Aldgra Fredly via The Epoch Times,

The U.S. State Department has once again amended its fact sheet on Taiwan and reinstated the line about not supporting the Chinese-claimed island’s independence, just weeks after removing it in May.

The State Department had previously removed the line on not supporting Taiwan’s independence and on recognizing Beijing’s position that Taiwan is a part of China from its fact sheet, a move China denounced as “political manipulation.”

In an updated page on the Taiwan fact sheet, the State Department says:

“We oppose any unilateral changes to the status quo from either side; we do not support Taiwan independence; and we expect cross-Strait differences to be resolved by peaceful means.”

The amended version of the page maintains that Washington would “make available defense articles and services as necessary to enable Taiwan to maintain a sufficient self-defense capability.”
