After Biden’s statements, a White House official has specified that with these words the president “Heralded no change” in US policy». “The United States defense relationship with Taiwan is guided by the Taiwan Relations Act. We will maintain our commitment under the Law, we will continue to support the self-defense of Taiwan and we will continue to oppose any unilateral change to the ‘status quo’ ”, he added.

On the other hand, during his speech at the CNN event, the US president has assured that he does not want “a cold war with China” and that he is not looking for a “conflict” with the Chinese president, Xi Jinping, with whom he has spoken “more than with any other world leader.”

Biden has also said that he is not worried about an international military conflict with China, but about an escalation, and has defended that he should “worry” about whether this or other countries like Russia, “are going to participate in activities that put them in a position in which they can make a serious mistake. ‘
